The instruments were mounted on a 9m mast made of 3m poles, of which the bottom 1m was dug in at time of erection.
Additionally a system of guy ropes was used to stabilize the structure.
The wind vane (RM Young propvane) was 8m above the snow surface, temperature and humidity sensor (Vaisala HMP45D) 7.5m above the surface,
the pressure sensor with the logger box was buried ~0.5m below the surface. Snow accumulation was not monitored.
