Automated Weather Station Data for Greenland Ice Core Locations


This dataset contains automated weather station data (temperature, pressure, relative humidity, and wind direction and speed) collected on and near the Greenland Ice Sheet Project Two (GISP2) site in Greenland. The data were collected every 10 minutes and compiled into three-hourly intervals at each site from 1987 to 1998.
