Station maintenance: 

To monitor the surface mass budget in the melt zone of the ice sheet the PROMICE/GAP network of automatic weather stations is installed. The stations measure air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and direction, atmospheric pressure, incoming and outgoing short- and longwave radiation, ice temperature, surface velocity, snow depth and ice ablation. Data from the stations is freely available from www.promice.org.
