# = value corrected by Fritz Loewe. Data validated by Gert König-Langlo ( Errors in the original data were corrected by using the registration diagrams. The global radiation values were converted from cal/cm**2/min to W/m**2 and divided with 2.2 as suggested from Georgi et al. 1935, page 119. Open questions concerning the calibration remain, see: hdl:10013/epic.31308.d001. See also doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.727180 for the meteorological synoptical observations.
The original registration diagrams can be found in the Johannes Georgi's papers, which are preserved by the Archive for German Polar Research (AGPR, For further information please turn to the archivist or to the AGPR's ( search engine (only in German).
