The Norwegian PACE boreholes (Janssonhaugen Svalbard and Juvvasshøe southern Mainland Norway) are taken care of by Dr. Ketil Isaksen, so also for the coming years. He serves the dataloggers and collects the data. The data are stored at the Norwegian Meteorological Institute (met.no).
MEAN ANNUAL GROUND TEMPERATURE AT OR NEAR DEPTH OF ZERO ANNUAL AMPLITUDE (°C) – report value for most recent year or 12 month interval -2.8°C (MAGT-ZAA)
Depth of zero annual amplitude (or depth of measurement reported above) (m) 16m
Year or 12 month interval for mean reported above 2005
AIR TEMPERATURE AND SNOW COVER THICKNESS/DENSITY MEASUREMENTS AT THE BOREHOLE SITE (indicate frequency of observations): Air temperature: Yes [x ] No [ ] Snow thickness: Yes[x] No[ ] Density: Yes [ ] No[x]
Also relative humidity, net radiation, wind speed/direction – one measurement every hour
NAME AND LOCATION OF CLOSEST CLIMATE STATION (latitude, longitude, and distance from borehole, km) – provide (if available) mean monthly air temperature and snow depth of reporting interval for mean annual ground temperature
Installed at site Sept. 1999 MAAT approx. -4.5°C. Snow thickness is very low (<0.1m) owing to the exposed setting.
