Abstract : The report reviews 84 months of Frigorimeter data measured in Arctic and Antarctic environments. The rationale underlying the development of the black-body sensor of the Frigorimeter is summarized, and the climatology of eight polar sites is illustrated. Conclusions are drawn which attest the ruggedness and the pragmatic usefulness of the Frigorimeter as a meteorological tool. (Author)
