  • Weather data acquisition was originally by manual observation and continued with an automated system installed in Nov 2001. Measurements began shifting from manual to automated observations in June 2003 until the manual observations were ended on December 12, 2003. Data are collected, compiled, and distributed by the US Antarctic polar contractor. Electronic distributed occurs monthly from Palmer station via internet and are available at University of Wisconsin weather archive: ftp://amrc.ssec.wisc.edu/pub/palmer/climatology/
