Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of meteorological and hydrological observations
from the 6 Russian stations described in Robock, et al (1995) and
Vinnikov and Yeserkepova (1991) for use in land surface models.

The data set consists of the following meteorological measurements:
saturation deficiency (mb), height of lower cloud layer (km), dew
point temperature (C), total cloudiness amount (tenths of total
