Please frequently REFRESH this clock!


(If you change your computers clock, the clock you see here is changed as well. Refreshing the page resets the web clock to UTC. Your computers clock is not influenced by that.)

Settings for temperature loggers

For GLORIA-wide consistent temperature series please consider, in addition to the short overview below, the following documents:

  1. The GLORIA Field Manual - Multi-Summit Approach for overall instructions on installing loggers, and
  2. GLORIA Temperature loggers - a technical appendix for technical instructions on logger management.

A short overview:

  • Time settings:
    All temperature data loggers internal time should be set to GMT/UTC.
    You achieve this by setting your computers time to GMT/UTC when launching the loggers.
    You cannot manually adjust internal time of the loggers to other than your computers time.
  • Start time:
    All temperature data loggers for a target region should start recording at the same time.
    When launching the loggers, choose 'delayed start' and set start time for all loggers to the same time.
  • Recording interval:
    Recording interval should be set to 1 hour!
    This gives a time-frame of about 3 years in field (about 1350 days) with a safety zone of a few months.
    Make sure, the loggers configuration is set to stop recording after this time or when its memory is full.
  • End time:
    When collecting your loggers from the summits again and exchanging them against a new set, make sure there is no gap in the time series.
