GCW Surface Network: CryoNet and Contributing Stations

CryoNet is the core GCW network of surface measurement stations. The GCW network also has Contributing stations that are not part of CryoNet. These may be stations that have very limited measurements, inconsistent data records, provide information that is redundant with CryoNet stations in the same geographic area, do not completely follow CryoNet measurement practices, or in some other way do not provide the quality and consistency of data required of CryoNet stations. Both CryoNet and Contributing stations are listed below.
