Scienceability of Greenland Weather Stations


Data indicates whether a given day between July 6, 1996 and May 19, 2019 was "scienceable" (temperature, wind speed, snowfall, and sunlight hours met the criteria determined for safe fieldwork conditions). This data was used in Leidman et al., 2020, Methods for Predicting the Likelihood of Safe Fieldwork Conditions in Harsh Environments, submitted to Frontiers in Cryospheric Research.

Scienceability for the DYE-2, S-9, S-10, KAN_U, NASA_SE, and Saddle weather stations is indicated below. A value of 1 indicates that the given day was determined to be scienceable (passing all 4 criteria) and a value of 0 indicates that the given day is not scienceable. No value indicates that there wasn't sufficient data to determine scienceability.
