All data are recorded by Campbell data logger CR1000. The precipitation data is record by T200B precipitation gauge near the debris-free Parlung No.4 Glacier. The precipitation at debris-covered 24K Glacier is recorded by RG-3 precipitation gauge. The interval of data record is 60 min. 

Automatic record by automatic weather stations.

Quality control to generate half-hour data.
