Summary
Abstract: North Atlantic Atlas Contours is historical digital dataset DSI-9937, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). Major data variables and parameters are as follows: file contains x and y coordinates for contour lines of statistics (means, percent frequency exceeding given cut off values) for air and sea surface temperature, wind speed, dew point, visibility, precipitation, clouds and wave heights. These statistics were derived from data contained in the marine surface observations file, DSI-1100 (C00001). DSI-1100 contains data collected from many different maritime nations for the period of late 1800's to early 1970's.

Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
