Map: Yamada, 1975, Figure A
Station Information: Yamada, 1975, p. 145
Temperature and Depth: Yamada, 1975, p. 145. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. "A thermistor-thermometer which had been calibrated with a standard themometer at Syowa Station was placed in a vertical hole, 10 m deep, bored with a SIPRE-type hand auger. The Thermometer was read 4-8 hours after setting, when a thermal equilibrium was obtained. The accuracy of the measurement was + or -0.5C." (Yamada, 1975, p. 145)
* Flag: Represents how temperature was derived. Values reported as (S) represent a single point measurement. This measurement has not been corrected for short term thermal decay or annual thermal cycle.
