USAP Antarctic Field Camp Observations, 1999-present (ongoing).

The following files are climatology data from years 1998 to present for several field camps around the continent. The data includes temperature (degrees C), visibility (hours), weather situation and duration (in hours for each event category), precipitation amount (in), IFR (hours), wind speed (m/s) and direction, sky cover, ceiling, pressure (inches), total observations taken, daily pressure and temperature changes, wind chill, and dew point temperatures (C).

Wind directions are reported in GRID direction and not compass direction (i.e. the orientation of GRID "North" is to the top of a map of Antarctica, with the prime meridian/Greenwich 0 degrees longitude to the top of the map).
