- Are the data quality controlled? yes
- How are the data accessible? FTP, HTTP (web)
- Data availability (may depend on the variable measured): delayed less than one year, delayed more than one year
The measurements made at Dome-C Surface-Snow-Meteo are listed in the following tables. (Note: If End Year is blank, measurements are ongoing.)
Measurement Notes and Other Measurements
|Category||Description or List|
|Snow||Albedo measurements are performed at 2 and 30 m of height|
|Icesheet||Internal temperature measured in the range 0-10 m at differnt depth. The probes in the first meter 0-100 cm are annually displaced at theirs nominal value. Accumulation is also measured.|
|Atmosphere||Available Daily Radiosoundings at 12:00 UTC from 2005.|
Both AWS and Soundings station have WMO ID 89625
Data are delivered through the WEB site "www.climantartide.it"
AWS coordinates are : -71,1 ; 123.4 . Altitude = 3233 m
or aerosol using sun-photometric techniques, aerosl optical tickness (AOT) and turbidity parameters are measured.
Activities were affected by several problems in the past so that acquaired data-sets have not the same regularity of radiation meas.
In the plan are to install moon photometer and try to detect AOD also during polar night.
BSRN coordinates are: -75.32, 123.39
BSRN data are available at bsrn.awi.de
