Cooperative Summary of the Day - Midwest Climate Center/MCCDP (DSI-3205)Entry ID: gov.noaa.ncdc.C00358
Abstract: Cooperative Summary of the Day - Midwest Climate Center/MCCDP is digital data set DSI-3205, archived at the National Climatic Data Center (NCDC). DSI-3205 contains daily minimum and maximum temperature and precipitation data, plus auxiliary information, for 9 US midwestern states plus New Mexico. The data were provided to the NCDC following an extensive data digitization project carried out by the ... Midwestern Climate Center (MCC). The MCC project was a collaborative effort by state climatologists to convert early data, which was available only in printed form, to digital files. Most data are from the period 1896-1947, but it varies. The earliest and latest data available for each of the 10 states are: Illinois : 1879-1948 Indiana : 1896-1948 Iowa : 1896-1948 Kentucky : 1893-1948 Michigan : 1863-1980 Minnesota : 1881-1948 Missouri : 1889-1948 New Mexico: 1897-1947 Ohio : 1896-1948 Wisconsin : 1896-1948 Auxiliary information includes station metadata and corrections to DSI-3200 data that are necessary for DSI-3205 to fit properly with DSI-3200. (DSI-3200 is Cooperative Summary of the Day and is the primary data set in the 32xx series of data sets.)
Purpose: To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public.
