Support in the field by the French (IPEV, Program CALVA-1013) and Italian (PNRA) polar institutes is acknowledged. This is a contribution to the CNES/INSU CONCORDIASI IPY Project. Meteorological data are obtained as part of the OSUG-CENECLAM observatory. We thank ISAC for access to the solar radiation data distributed by BSRN (http://www.bsrn.awi.de/). Some of this material is based upon work partially supported by the U.S. NSF-OPP under Grant ANT-0944018.
