Report on the Victoria University of Wellington Antarctic Expedition 1960-61: VUWAE 4



Due to the attenuated area chosen the field arrangements of the 1960-61 party were planned so that the personnel worked from north to south through the area. Therefore it was not possible to establish a fixed position meteorological page 2 station. A meteorological screen was erected at the third base camp and records are available for the final three weeks of the Expedition. Measurements of temperature, wind, cloud amount and direction of movement were made at main synoptic hours by two members but these are of limited value because the parties were seldom stationary for more than a day. (Records held by Bull, Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. are not yet analysed - results will be worked up and submitted to the New Zealand Meteorological Office as with earlier V.U.W.A.E. meteorological records.)
