SnowStorm Data: Long-Term Data Sets About Snowstorms in the United StatesEntry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00666
Abstract: The SnowStorm Data: Long-Term Data Sets About Snowstorms in the United States is a study prepared by Changnon Climatologist, in cooperation with NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) as part of a project awarded through the NOAA Office of Global Programs. A goal of this 3 year project was to develop 5 data sets each pertaining to different aspects of snowstorms in the conterminous United ... States during the 20th century. The CD-ROM contains the following data sets: * Point (station) values of snowstorms of 6 inches or more in 1 or 2 days, 1901-2000, across the entire United States. * Descriptions of features of mapped snowstorms for 1951-2000 in the eastern two thirds of the United States. * Snowstorm catastrophes, causing greater than $1 million in damages, during 1949-2000, for the entire United States. * The frequency values for once in 5-year snow amounts, once in 10-year snow amounts, and record highest snowstorm amounts during 1948-2000, as based on 1- to 2- day storms, and for the eastern two-thirds of the United States. * Winds, precipitation, and temperatures associated with the top ten heaviest snowstorms at selected first-order stations for 1950-2000, in the eastern two-thirds of the United States.
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
