Drifting-snow statistics from multiple-year autonomous measurements in Adélie Land, East Antarctica

Charles Amory

Data sets

A drifting snow data set (2010-2018) from coastal Adelie Land, eastern Antarctica Amory, C., Genthon, C., and Favier, V.

Short summary
This paper presents an assessment of drifting-snow occurrences and snow mass transport from up to 9 years (2010–2018) of half-hourly observational records collected at two remote locations in coastal Adelie Land (East Antarctica) using second-generation IAV Engineering acoustic FlowCapt sensors. The dataset is freely available to the scientific community and can be used to complement satellite products and evaluate snow-transport models close to the surface and at high temporal frequency.
