Summary
Abstract: The streamflow data resides in 3 books, 'Schatzung der Mittleren
Niederschlagshohen in Grossberzogtum Hessen in den Jahren 1901 und
1910' (C/dc 201 g), and 'Schatzung der Mittleren Niederschlagshohen in
Grossberzogtum Hessen und Vergleichung der Nierderschlagshohen im
Jahrzehnt 1901-1910' both written in German. The data contained in
this book are tables of annual precipitation and streamflow data for
the Hessen region of Germany, for each year from 1893 to 1910. The
parameters included in these data are mean yearly precipitation total,
streamflow, percent of annual precipitation total, mean annual
precipitation amount, and deviation from the mean for each year's
precipitation amount.

Climate data for the Hessen region resides in 6 books, 'Deutsches
Meteorologisches Jahrbuch Fur Grosshezogthum Hessen' (C/dc 200 Hd);
'Welter Und Wasserstands Beobachtungen in Hessen' (C/dc 200 H);
'Montaliche Uebesicht der Beobachtungen' (C/dc 200 Hm); Niederschlags
Beobachtungen an den Meteorologischen Stationen im Grossherzogthum
Hessen' (C/dc 200 Hn); and 'Wasserstandsbeobachtungen im Hessen
1921-1930' (C/dc 200 HW), all written in German. The data contained in
these books are tables of daily ,monthly, and seasonal surface
climatic data for the Hessen region of Germany. These data are for
each individual month or year from 1901 to 1936. Parameters included
in the hourly observations are pressure, temperature, humidity, winds,
cloudiness, sunshine, precipitation, and snow cover. Daily variables
incorporated in these data are: mean pressure, temperature, humidity,
cloudiness, rain amount, sunshine hours and mean daily sunshine; snow
cover and precipitation amounts; water levels; runoff; and maximum
wind velocity (Darmstadt only).

Monthly parameters included in these data are the following: mean
pressure, humidity, temperature, vapor pressure, cloudiness, sunshine
hours, and per cent sunshine; mean maximum and minimum pressure and
temperature; absolute maximum and minimum pressure, temperature
(including date), humidity, and wind velocity (Darmstadt only); wind
direction frequency; 24 hour precipitation; precipitation amounts;
number of days of precipitation of a certain intensity, snow of a
certain intensity, hail, rain, dew, clear skies, cloudy skies,
thunderstorms, fog, sleet, frost, ice, and snow cover, min <0, maximum
and minimum <0, maximum > 25 and different water group levels; rain
hours and duration; mean intensity of rain; and frequency of rain
amounts. The monthly mean temperature averaged over the period is
tabulated. Annual totals of the above parameters can be found in the
book with call no. C/dc 200 Hm. reference. In addition there is data
on the latest and earliest frost and greatest amount of snowfall for
each of the appropriate months, hottest and coldest days, highest and
lowest water levels (including dates), and maps of monthly
distribution of rainfall and monthly total rainfall in the region for
each year.

Additional climate data resides in 6 books, 'Wichtigste Ergebnisse der
Meteorologischen Beobachtungen in Hessen' (C/dc 200 Hwi) written in
German. The data contained in this book are tables of daily, monthly,
and annual surface climatic data for the Hessen region of Germany
averaged over the period 1901 to 1920. The daily parameters included
in these data are mean temperature, temperature change, and per cent
sunshine. The monthly variables incorporated in these data are the
following: mean pressure, temperature, humidity, cloudiness, sunshine,
and precipitation totals; mean monthly maximum and minimum pressure,
and temperature; absolute maximum 24 hour precipitation; mean number
of days of precipitation greater than a certain intensity, snow or
snow and rain greater than a certain intensity; sunshine; and mean
number of snow and frost-free days. Other parameters included in these
data are mean earliest and latest snowfall and frost; absolute
earliest and latest snowfall; absolute greatest snow cover depth; and
absolute earliest and latest frost. There is a map of mean annual
precipitation.

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.
