Precipitation and Temperature Values Derived from the World Monthly Surface Station Climatology (WMSSC)
Entry ID: JISAO_WMSSC_DIGITAL_VALUE


Summary
Abstract: The World Monthly Surface Station Climatology (WMSSC) comprises time
series of precipitaion, surface temperature, and sometimes sea-level
pressure, station pressure, and relative humidity for thousands of
stations around the world. The data set provides digital values for
months and years, for example, February 1953, and it is maintained and
available from by the National Center for Atmospheric Research. What
is presented on this WWW is a climatology of the precipitation and
surface temperature calculated by Ernie Recker of the Department of
Atmospheric Sciences of the University of Washington.
