Note that the LTER and AMRC AWS data above also include soil temperatures at 5cm and 10cm depth.



30 April 2002 – 13 January 2004

NIWA AWS installed at Cape Hallett in April 2002. Ian Hawes is contact. Includes 4 x temperature sensors at 10cm depth.
AWS removed January 2004 (replaced by LTER AWS), but soil temperature probes remain.

2004 No data available.
January 2004:
- MRC temperature probe installed by University of Waikato (Megan Balks). Probe sticking out of the ground approx 10cm.
- 3 Vitel hydra probes installed to approx 10cm depth. Measure temperature and moisture as well as a range of other variables (e.g. salinity). Only get data out of two of these probes: H1 installed on a mound and H2 installed in a hollow.
Data from MRC, H1*, H2*
2006 Data from MRC, H1*, H2* and 3 of the 4 original temperature probes.
2009 Data from MRC, H1*, H2* and 3 of the 4 original temperature probes.
2010 Data from MRC, H1*, H2* and 3 of the 4 original temperature probes.
2011 Data from MRC, H1*, H2* and 3 of the 4 original temperature probes.

*Note that data other than temperature are raw data and should be used with caution. Contact Megan Balks at University of Waikato for further information.

All data are to be acknowledged to the Latitudinal Gradient Project

Baseline Data
This is the completion of a pre-prepared form describing the different aspects of a site. The form is similar to RiSCC's (now EBA) baseline data form so that sites along the latitudinal gradient have comparable descriptors.
