Summary
Abstract: The Kazan rainfall data resides in 1 book, 'Rainfall in Kazan' (C/db
p987), and is written in Russian. This book contains tables of monthly
and annual rainfall totals for each year of the period 1876 to 1925.

The Kazan weather data reside in 2 books, 'Observations Faites A
L'observatoire Meteorologique De L'universite Imperiale De Kazan'
(C/db K23), and is written in Russian and French. These books contain
tables of daily surface weather observations and mean monthly,
seasonal, and annual averages of surface pressure and temperature for
Kazan, Russia. Pressure data are for each individual year from 1891
to 1895, and temperature data are for 1896 to 1900 and 1911 to
1912. These averages are for individual hours.

The Kazan climate data resides in 10 books, 'Bulletin De
L'Observatoire Meteorologique De L'Universite Imperiale De Kazan'
(C/db AO-K), 'Observations Faites a l'Observatoire Meteorologie
Imperiale De Kazan' (C/db AO-Kg), 'Bulletin Meteorologie De
L'Observatoire De Geophysique De L'Universite De Kazan' (C/db AO-Kh),
and 'Resultats Des Observations Faites Au Nouvel Observatoire
Meteorologique De L'Universite De Kharkow'. All 10 are written in
Russian and French.

The data contained in these books are hourly surface observations and
daily and monthly surface climatic data for each month from 1900 to
1909. These data are for Kazan and Kharkov, Russia. Parameters
included in the hourly observations are pressure, air and soil
temperature, humidity, cloudiness, cloud movement, winds, and
sunshine.

Daily variables for each month of the period incorporated in these
data are the following: mean pressure, air temperature, and humidity;
maximum and minimum air and soil temperature; absolute maximum and
minimum pressure; and precipitation, evaporation, and snow height
totals.

Monthly parameters for each month contained in these data are: mean
winds; absolute maximum and minimum pressure, temperature, humidity,
cloudiness, and 24 hour precipitation; precipitation totals; number of
days of maximum and minimum temperature < 0, precipitation, hail,
snow, sleet, thunderstorms, and strong winds; and wind direction
frequency.

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.
