Extract AWS data

This form allows you to extract and download weather station data from Australia's Antarctic stations. The earliest data available is from Casey Station in 1996.

Each file includes data (where available) for:

Data from Macquarie Island also includes accumulated rainfall (mm).

For all downloads other than those at full resolution (1 minute intervals), an average, minimum, and maximum are provided on all parameters. For example, if you choose daily resolution, you'll receive an average, a minimum, and a maximum for each value calculated over each 24 hour period. Wind direction is calculated as a circular average.

If you require a large set of this data, we are happy to extract it for you upon request.

Important: Please read and understand the Antarctic meteorology metadata and how to cite this data appropriately.

This page will removed in the future releases and is only available for Dome Argus data extraction. To download data for other stations use https://data.aad.gov.au/aws
