The data consists of 30 minute observations recorded by an automatic weather station (iWS 18) in Cabinet Inlet on Larsen C Ice Shelf on the Antarctic Peninsula. The iWS consists of a custom-built weather station unit, assembled at the Institute of Marine and Atmospheric research Utrecht (IMAU). There are sensors for air temperature, surface air pressure, relative humidity, as well as a gps, an acoustic snow height sensor, an ARGOS communication antenna, and three Lithium batteries that fuel the unit when solar radiation is absent. The unit is complemented by a propeller-vane Young anemometer measuring wind direction and speed. Additionally, all radiation fluxes are measured with a Kipp and Zonen CNR4 radiometer. This dataset runs from November 2014 to January 2017.
