Japanese Antarctic Research Expedition (JARE) 10 and 11 1969-1970


Map: Shimizu, 1972, Figure A.

Station Information: Shimizu, 1972, p. 17-37. Dates given are accurate to within + or - 1 month. Duration of JARE 10 traverse is November 1, 1969 - January 29, 1970. Duration of JARE 11 traverse is November 3, 1970 - January 22, 1971.

Temperature and Depth: Shimizu, 1972, p. 17-37. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. Temperature was measured with a thermistor-thermometer placed in a hole bored with a SIPRE hand auger. "The thermistor-thermometer was calibrated both before and after the traverses with a standard alcoholic thermometer at Syowa Station." (Shimizu, 1972, p. 15)

* 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.
