All scientific data collected by the Australian Antarctic program (AAp) are eventually described in the Catalogue of Australian Antarctic and Subantarctic Metadata (CAASM). CAASM can be used to search through AAp data descriptions, and it also provides links to access publicly available datasets, which can either be immediately downloaded or obtained from the Australian Antarctic Data Centre (AADC).

Description

A compilation of temperature measurements taken from ice core boreholes on Law Dome in the 1987 season. Includes detailed notes on measuring methodology, and papers on the interpretation of results from the specific equipment used to record the temperatures, as well as calibration work done.

A text file of blended borehole temperature readings for the Law Dome DSS (Dome Summit South) site is available for download. A copy of the referenced publication is available to AAD staff.
