This dataset provides air temperature and bedrock temperature data from a nunatak (515 m ASL) at the Mittivakkat glacier in southeast Greenland. The data were collected at 3-hour intervals, between 1993 and 2002, and include air temperature at 2 m, and rock temperature at 25 cm and at 100 cm. Data are missing for the summer of 1998. Data are available via ftp.
