Meteorology Observatory of Neumayer Station
Since March 1981 a meteorological observatory programme has been carried out at the Georg-von-Neumayer Station (70°37'S, 8°22'W) continuously. For a bipolar intercomparison the same programme is also carried out at the AWIPEV Research Base in the Arctic. The programme consists of 3 main parts:
- 3-hourly routine synoptic observations,
- daily upper air soundings,
- surface radiation and mast measurements.
The station Neumayer (70°39'S, 8°15'W) took over these activities in March 1992. The program was extended to incorporate two new main parts:
The meteorological measurements are performed in close cooperation with the measurements of the air chemistry observatory at Neumayer. Both observatories contribute to the network of Global Atmospheric Watch from the WMO.
