Abstract

This dataset contains Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and meteorological data from instruments mounted on a train of the Snowdon Mountain Railway (SNTR) as it travelled up and down the mountain.

The data were collected from 28th August 2011 to 16th October 2011 (50 days).

Two instruments collected data from the summit including; Paroscientific 745 (ncl-paro-745) and Leica GS10 GNSS (ncl-leica-gnss). The ncl-leica-gnss measured dual frequency GPS and GLONASS code and carrier phase satellite to receiver measurements, whilst the ncl-paro-745 sensor recorded pressure data.
