Station Information: Fujiwara and Endo, 1971, p. 154-182.

Temperature and Depth: Fujiwara and Endo, 1971, p. 69. Temperature reported in Celsius, depth is in meters. "The temperatures were determined by a thermistor themometer, keeping enough time before final readings were taken. Care was taken not to leave boring scraps of snow at the bottom of the holes." (Fujiwara and Endo, 1971, p. 68-69)

* 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.
