Abstract:
The first meteorological station in the Vernagtferner basin, called 'Gletschermitte' was run from 1968 to 1987. It was positioned on a small rock in the western part of the glacier at an elevation of 3078 m a.s.l. The coordinates were 46.868939° N (Latitude) and 10.802986° E (Longitude). The following parameters were recorded mainly during the summer months: Wind speed and wind direction, air temperature and humidity of the air and precipitation. The records of the first four parameters comprise hourly values from 1968 to 1986 /1987, daily sums of precipitation run from 1977 to 1987. All quantities were recorded on paper chart, i.e. 'Woelfle-Windschreiber' for the wind components, mechanically driven thermo-hygrographs (1968 to 1975) and 'BTW-Langzeit-Thermo-Hygrograph' (1977 to 1987) for temperature and humidity, Belfort analogue weighing gauge for precipitation. In 1976, air temperature was recorded on a Schenk paper chart recorder. In addition, photographs of the eastern part of Vernagtferner were taken once a day in summer between 1981 and 1986.
