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.
Density: Reported in g/cm3. Density measurements are "probebly underestimated by approximately 10 to 15%" (De Breuck, 1968, p. 6).
Accumulation: Rundle, 1971, p. 242. Accumulation 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.
** Average Density for 0-2 m. De Breuck, 1968, 18 charts.
