Victoria University Antarctic Research Expedition Science and Logistics Reports 2002-03: VUWAE 47



For most days in the field the weather was generally good. Field movements by helicopter were not constrained by the weather although it was a close call for the movement scheduled on 29 November. Field work was not restricted due to weather conditions at any time. Temperatures at Table Mountain ranged from −20°C at night to −12°C during warmer days but strong wind chill occasionally caused temperatures down to −30°C. Pearse Valley was warmer with temperatures ranging mostly from −8°C to −4°C with a few nights of −14°C. Victoria Valley was colder again with –8°C to –12°C but warmed up to –1°C with the arrival of winds of up to 25 knots in the last few days.
