South Pole-Queen Maud Land Traverse II 1965-1966


Notes

Map: Picciotto et al., 1971, p. 259

Station Information: Picciotto et al., 1971, p. 261. Latitude and Longitude reported in decimal degrees. Elevation reported in meters.

Temperature: Picciotto et al., 1971, p. 261. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters.

Accumulation: Koerner, 1971, p. 225. Reported in g/cm2.

* Flag: Represents how temperature was derived. Values reported as (A) represent a mean annual temperature measurement. Accuracy of temperature values is questionable because temperature measurements were not taken at the bottom of the hole.
