vapor pressure, relative humidity, cloudiness, rainfall, solar
radiation, evaporation, and magnetic declination, horizontal
intensity, and vertical component are included in the tables. Monthly
surface parameters incorporated in the tables are; absolute maximum
and minimum temperature and precipitation; number of days of

condition with a ripped off cover.

'Memoires de l'Institut Hydrologique Vol. VIII' (C/db K15v ) is

pressure and wind observation tables, and daily isobaric maps for
Western USSR. These tables and maps are for May through July of each

These books are part of the foreign meteorological data collection
held by the NOAA Central Library in Washington, DC. Information in
this collection dates back to the 18th century for daily, monthly,
seasonal, and annual tabular summaries, and the 19th century for
weather maps. These data are the result of foreign exchange
agreements, but the collection has not been updated since 1983.
