Antarctic Ten Meter Temperature Data, Version 1

Firn temperature from a depth of about ten meters provides a close estimate of mean annual surface air temperature. This data collection is a compilation of temperature measurements dating back prior to 1956 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.

This is the most recent version of these data.
