TitleAutomatic Weather Station (AWS) program operated by the University of Wisconsin-Madison During the 2011-2012 field seasonAbstractDuring the 2011-2012 austral summer, the Antarctic Automatic Weather Station (AWS) program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison completed its 32nd year of observations. Ongoing studies utilizing the network include topics in Antarctic meteorology and climate studies. This field season consisted of work throughout the Ross Island area, the Ross Ice Shelf, West Antarctica, and East Antarctica. Argos satellite transmissions are the primary method for relaying station data, but throughout this year, a number of stations in the Ross Island area have been converted to Freewave modems, with their data being relayed through McMurdo station. Each AWS station report contains information regarding the instrumentation currently installed and the work performed at each site. An overview of the AWS applications is included along with field work accomplished. ©2013 National Institute for Polar Research.AcknowledgementsThe authors wish to thank those who have supported the AWS program in the field, and specifically to Ken Borek Air, the 109th New York Air National Guard, PHI Helicopters, Antarctic Support Contract/Lockheed Martin, our international partners in France, Australia, United Kingdom, Japan, New Zealand, and especially the Division of Polar Programs, Geoscience Directorate at the National Science Foundation in the USA.
