    Summary

  • The Japanese Ny-Alesund Observatory, which is cal1ed "Rabben" was established in April 1991 there. It is located at about 1.5 km north west from the center of Ny-Alesund. The latitude, longitude and altitude of the observatory are 78o55'N, 11o56'E and about 40 m, respectively. We developed an automatic system for meteorological data acquisition, because no permanent stuff stayed at the observatory throughout the year to maintain instruments. Their sensors were installed nearby Rabben. Ground based measurements of meteorological elements have been made continuously since August 16, 1992 at the observatory. This data report shows the data from January 1999 to December 2000.
