Title: Hourly, Daily, Weekly, Monthly, and Annual Meteorological Observations of England, Scotland, and Parts of Ireland (1851-1931)
Description:
Abstract:
The weather data resides in 1 book, 'On the Meteorology of England, Southern Scotland and Ireland Ending December 1851 to December 31, 1871' (C/de 100 g54). The data contained in this book are tables of daily, monthly, and quarterly surface weather data for England, Scotland, and Ireland over the period 1851-1871. Gaps occur during this period. Tables include daily data, averaged over a period, for range of temperature. Tables contain the following monthly data averaged over a period: mean pressure, temperature, humidity, cloudiness, wind direction and speed, evaporation, and dew point; mean maximum and minimum temperatures; absolute maximum and minimum temperatures; deviation from normal for range of temperatures, precipitation, evaporation, and dew point. Averaged individually: number of days with temperatures under 32 degrees, between 32 and 40 degrees and over 40 degrees; total precipitation; and the number of days with precipitation. Tables contain the following quarterly data, averaged over a period: mean pressure, temperature, humidity, cloudiness, wind direction and speed, and evaporation; mean maximum and minimum temperature; range of temperature; total precipitation; and the number of days with precipitation. The following monthly observations were made: dates of occurrence of thunderstorms, hail, fog, aurora, snow and rain, and solar and lunar halos. Scotland surface weather data resides in 16 books, 'Scotland Ministry of Agriculture and Fishery. Agricultural Meteorology Report (1924-1931)' (C/de 50 Ao) The data contained in these books are tables and graphs of hourly, daily, weekly, monthly, and annual surface weather data for Scotland from 1924 to 1931. The tables contain hourly data for sunshine (percent of normal). Tables contain the following daily data, determined individually: absolute maximum and minimum temperatures and pressure; number of days with wind direction in each of eight categories (E,W,N,S,SE,SW,NW,NE). Tables contain the following weekly data, determined for a period: mean temperature; absolute maximum and minimum temperature; total precipitation; deviation from normal for temperatures and precipitation; number of days with precipitation. Tables contain the following monthly data determined for a period: mean temperature, sunshine, humidity, and dew point; and total precipitation. Determined individually: mean maximum and minimum temperatures; absolute maximum and minimum temperatures; number of days with temperature above and below 42 degrees. Graphs contain the following weekly data, determined individually: yields of grass as a function of meteorological conditions for years 1853-1927. Graphs contain the following monthly data, determined individually: radiation records of sunshine for 1913-1926; variance of maximum and minimum temperatures for 1853-1927; correlations between maximum and minimum temperatures for 1878-1926; and average effect, in bushels per acre, of one additional inch of rain, on a yearly basis for 1876-1926. Graphs contain annual data, determined individually for total rainfall for the years 1853-1927. 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.
