  1. Air temperature and relative humidity measurements during the 2008–2010 study period at two sites on the Fildes Peninsula, King George Island. Mean daily air tempature, mean minimum daily air temperature, mean maxiumum daily air temperature, and mean daily relative humidity based on data collected from HOBO Pro v2 loggers (Onset, Bourne, Mass) mounted at 20 cm above the soil surface. A. Values inside the control and OTC plots. B. Values in plots at both study sites. Different letters indicate statistical differences (p < 0.05) for treatments and sites
