Title: Hourly and Daily Surface and Upper Air Weather Data for China, Japan, Indonesia, Phillipines, Adjacent Seas and Western Pacific (1860-1943)
Description:
Abstract:
The Buitenzorg, Indonesia data reside in 1 book, 'Observations Meteorologiques Tires Des Observations Faites Au Jardin Botanique De Buitenzorg 's Lands Plantentuin' (C/eg AOb), and is written in French. The tables contained in this book are hourly weather observations and daily weather averages for Buitenzorg, Indonesia from 1901 to 1904. The parameters included in these tables are air temperature, temperature at ground depths of 30, 60, 90 cm, and absolute and relative humidity. The eastern China data reside in 1 book, 'Climatic Atlas of China Proper' (Miscellaneous Unclassified Publications). The maps contained in this atlas are monthly, seasonal, and annual weather averages for Eastern China from 1860 to 1943. The variables displayed in this atlas are pressure, air temperature, and precipitation. For precipitation, there are maps of the month of maximum and minimum precipitaion, rainy days, period with monthly precipitation greater than 100 and 200 mm, the maximum and minimum annual, and the maximum daily precipitation. Other features included in this atlas are monthly climatic types, climatic divisions according to Koeppen's classification, and tentative climatic divisions. The China, Japan, and Phillipines data reside in 1 book, 'Hong-Kong Observatory Weather Maps, November 1926 Specimen Month' (Miscellaneous Foreign Weather Maps). The data contained in these books are daily weather observation tables for China, Japan, and the Phillipines, and daily weather maps for East Asia and adjacent seas for the month of November 1926. The surface parameters included in the tables are pressure, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, and present weather for a specific observation time. The maps include isobars, cloudiness, and wind barbs. The southeast Asia data resides in 6 books, 'Service Meteorologique De L'Indochine Observations Meteorologiques' (C/ed I410), and is written in French. The data contained in this book are hourly weather observation tables for Southeast Asia and daily weather maps for East Asia and adjacent areas of the Western Pacific for the period 1937 to 1939. The surface parameters included in the tables are cloudiness, rainfall, visibility, and surface wind speed and direction. In addition, hourly upper level wind observations are given for Southeast Asian cities. The maps contain isobars, wind barbs and cloudiness for 5 A.M of each day of the period. The Taiwan and Korea data reside in 1 book, 'Aerial Weather Charts of Sea Near Japan' (Miscellaneous Foreign Publications), and is written in Japanese with notes in English. This book contains two types of data: monthly mean wind rose diagrams for Taiwan and Korea from the surface to 3,000 meters; and wind contour maps for the East Coast of Asia and adjacent seas, for levels of 1,000, 1,500, 2,000, and 3,000 meters above the surface. These data are for 1922 and 1923 only. The Manilla, Phillipines data reside in 1 book, 'Observatorio Meteorologico De Manila' (C/eg 20 M278C), and is written in Portuguese. The data contained in this book are graphs of continuous daily weather traces for Manila, Phillipines from 1884 to 1888. The parameters displayed on these graphs are surface pressure, wind speed and direction, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, and rainfall. In addition there are some seismological parameters displayed. The China precipitation data reside in 1 book, 'Etude Sur La Pluie En Chine' (C/eb G417), and is written in French. The data contained in this book are maps of monthly, seasonal, and annual precipitation for China averaged over the period 1873 to 1925. 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.
