Climate data for Tarfala Research Station is available from three sources: the station monitoring program, the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute, and research publications that use these data sources.
Meteorological observations have been carried out in the Tarfala valley since the first glaciological field campaign in May 1946. Up until 1965 all measurements were manual and covered only the field (summer) seasons. From 1965 to 1987, automated data collection (chart recorders) were used. In 1987 the first digital logger based station was established which is still in operation.
Data files for a single year.
