Annex Creek Station History

Located just "around the corner" from Juneau near powerplant, on generally SE-facing slope. Current coordinates 58 degrees 19' N, 134 degrees 06' W, elevation 24 feet. Record 10/16/16 - 6/1/89. Moved an unknown distance S 8/5/36, temperature sensors moved from 5 feet to 17 feet at that time. Slight move N 2/6/45; slight move SW 9/6/72; MaxMin system installed 9/8/88. Station closed the following year.

Observation time initially 5 pm (4 pm AST). Changed to 2 pm (1 pm AST) 5/15/60; 4 pm (3 pm AST) 5/7/78. All Southeastern stations switched from PST to AST 10/31/83. Observations switched to 6 pm starting 12/1/86.

Observer corporate cooperative; gold mines and power plant. Potentially correctable time changes may have biased maximum temperature trend.

Note that Annex Creek is one of three stations in the Juneau area: Juneau (Airport), Juneau2 (city) and Annex Creek (power plant.)
