Group: Summary

   The Mean Annual Temperature map was calculated by creating a contour map using 
   compiled 10 meter firn temperature data from NSIDC and other mean annual 
   temperature data from both cores and stations.

   The 10 meter data contains temperature measurements dating back to 1957 and 
   the International Geophysical Year, including measurements from several major 
   recent surveys. Data cover the entire continental ice sheet and several ice 
   shelves, but coverage density is generally low.

   Data are stored in Microsoft Excel and Tagged Image File Format (TIFF), and 
   are available sporadically from 1957 to 2003 via FTP.
