Entry ID: NCL00159_173

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Danzig surface climatic data resides in 8 books, 'Ergebnisse Der
Meteorologischen Beobachtungen Danzig Statt. Observ.' (C/dba AO-D)
written in German. The data contained in these books are tables of
daily and monthly surface climatic data and hourly observations for
Danzig, Poland from 1930 to 1938. Parameters included in the hourly
observations are pressure, vapor pressure, air temperature, cloud
cover, humidity, precipitation, and winds.

Daily data are soil temperature observations, maximum and minimum air
temperature, mean temperature and winds, sunshine duration, and
precipitation totals. Monthly parameters included in these data for
each individual month include the following: mean pressure,
temperature, humidity, sunshine, cloudiness, and wind speed; mean
maximum and minimum pressure and temperature; absolute maximum and
minimum pressure and temperature; and number of days of precipitation,
precipitation greater then a certain intensity, snow, hail,
thunderstorms, fog, haze, clear and cloudy skies, frost days, ice
days, summer days, and strong winds. Monthly variables averaged over
the period 1925-1934 represented in these data are mean wind velocity
for a given hour, and storm days for a given wind direction. Seasonal
data are wind direction frequency for each hour and for each
individual season of the year, and average wind velocity for a given
wind direction, averaged over the period.

The Danzig sunshine statistics resides in 1 book, 'Ergebnisse Der
Strahlungregistrierungen am Staalichen Observatorium Danzig im Jahre
1936-37' (C/dba AO-D) written in German. The data contained in this
book are daily sunshine statistics for Danzig, Poland from 1936 to
1937. The parameters included in these data are the following: solar
radiation intensity for a given time of day; hours of direct solar
radiation for each day of the year; and daily totals of sunshine and
sky radiation on a horizontal surface.

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.
