About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Antarctic Research Series, Volume 61.

This volume provides examples of the application of state-of-the-art technology to fundamental problems in Antarctic meteorology and climatology. The technology, particularly as related to instrumentation and satellite communication, has been developed and applied in response to definite scientific needs. In its original conception the volume contents were limited to the U.S. Antarctic automatic weather station (AWS) program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and to the results flowing from analysis of the collected data. The focus subsequently shifted to include a broader collection of papers on atmospherically related topics. Thus this volume, in addition to illustrating the importance and usefulness of Antarctic automatic weather station data, can also serve as an introduction to a number of basic issues in Antarctic meteorology and climatology.
