Welcome to the home of the Cryologger, an open-source, low-cost, modular and robust data logger/telemeter system intended for supporting the physical measurement needs of a wide range of cryospheric scientific applications and general environmental monitoring.

The Cryologger project is led by Adam Garbo and Derek Mueller at the Water and Ice Research Laboratory at Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada.

Cryologger designs are available online at: https://github.com/cryologger/

There are 3 mature designs at present:
1) A real-time Ice Tracking Beacon (https://github.com/cryologger/ice-tracking-beacon) that sends location, pitch, roll, heading and internal temperature over the Iridium satellite network. Preliminary data are here and cleaned data can be found in the Iceberg Tracking Beacon Database.

2) A datalogger (no real-time data) to record high-precision Global Navigational Satellite System (GNSS) data we use for Glacier Velocity Tracking (https://github.com/cryologger/glacier-velocity-tracker). These systems have been set out on for long term deployments on glaciers around the world.

This website serves to 1) inform the general public about the Cryologger project (those with the skills and interest can find more technical info at https://github.com/cryologger/) but also to 2) display raw data from Cryologger weather stations and ice tracking beacons.
