Table 2: Statistical evaluation of temperature and wind for the 2-year period (April 2008–March 2010). Kongsvegen record is from the whole period, Nordenskiöldbreen record is from March in 2009 until March in 2010 (1 year), and Vestfonna record is from April in 2008 until April in 2009 (1 year). -corr is height corrected temperatures. Bold numbers indicate the best result for each AWS.
