Weather data, Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica, 2004-2006


Weather data collected between 2004 and 2006 as part of the RABID project on Rutford Ice Stream, West Antarctica. Wind speed, wind direction, temperature, pressure, humidity, and solar radiation data were recorded using HOBO AWS (Automatic Weather Station) data logger and sensors.

The RABID project employed hot-water drilling techniques, down-hole instrumentation, as well as surface geophysical measurements, to form an integrated programme studying ice dynamics, basal conditions, climate and glacial history.
