Langenferner AWS installation time-lapse

Just a bit of fun here! Institute for Meteorology and Geophysics Innsbruck (IMGI) PhD student Stephan Galos and colleagues installed an automatic weather station (AWS) in the accumulation area of Langenferner over a couple of years ago and they made a time-lapse of the process. The weather station is one of two stations on Langenferner that IMGI (actually Stephan!) maintains to continually monitor conditions in the glacier area and together these are used to drive surface energy balance models of glacier ablation and also form the basis of more detailed studies of atmospheric dynamics in the region.

About lindsey

Environmental scientist. I am glaciologist specialising in glacier-climate interactions to better understand the climate system. The point of this is to understand how glaciated envionments might change in the future - how the glaciers will respond and what the impact on associated water resources and hazard potential will be.
