Antarctic Automated Weather Stations

January 13th, 2007 |

SSEC/AMRC co-investigator Matt Lazzara was down in Antarctica in January (don’t worry, it was summer down there at the time) heping to install a new Automated Weather Station (AWS) on the Ross Ice Shelf. He sent a nice Terra MODIS visible channel image that they received at McMurdo Station (above), as well as a photo of the actual weather station after installation (below).
