This historical dataset is recommended for ancillary use only and not as a primary research dataset. It has likely been superseded by a newer, improved dataset.


This dataset contains daily surface observations from polar automatic weather stations on Greenland for January 1987 to October 1991. Observations are reported every 3 hours and are archived for 8 stations.

Data for 18 automatic weather stations in Greenland are available starting in 1999 from the Greenland Climate Network

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
