Mueller Hut meteorological station

NIWA has established a network of 11 high elevation meteorological stations aiming to gather information about the amount, extent, seasonal nature and long-term change to snow and ice in alpine regions of New Zealand. Each site was selected to represent a specific weather pattern in New Zealand. This information is essential to understand, predict, and manage the resource and hazards associated with each location. 

Mueller Hut meteorological station is at 1818. elevation and located in Mount Cook National Park. This site also measures solic precipitation and solar radiation. This is the deepest (~3m) of all the snow and ice network sites and records at this site start from 2010.
