Title: Hourly, Daily, Monthly, Seasonal, and Annual Weather Data for Spain Including Catalonia, Madrid, Oviedo, Gilbraltar, and Malaga (1851-1927)
Description:
Abstract:
The Catalonia data resides in 1 book, 'Servicio Meteorologico de Cataluna Carta del Tiempo' (C/dg AO) written in Spanish. This book contains hourly and daily surface weather data in tables for Catalonia, Spain, maps for that region, and maps for Western Europe and the north-western tip of Africa in 1926. The tables contain hourly data for temperature, surface winds, and sky cover. The tables contain daily data, averaged individually for absolute maximum and minimum temperatures, and total precipitation. In addition, the tables show occasional upper-level wind data from the observatory in Ebro. The local maps contain hourly data for cloudiness and surface winds. The regional maps include hourly data for pressure, fronts, and surface winds. Narratives below the maps elaborate on specific local conditions. Additional Catalonia data resides in 1 book, 'Granja Experimental de Barcelona: Resumen de las Observaciones Meteorologicas y Fenologicas (1896-1899)' (C/dg500 G75 28290) In these summaries, definitions are: 1. Hourly/daily/monthly/seasonal/annual data - values determined for each consecutive period, e.g., monthly temperature data: Jan 1900, Feb 1900, etc. 2. Long-term data - values determined over a period of years, e.g., long-term monthly temperature data using Jan 1900, Jan 1901, etc. This book contains regional monthly and seasonal surface weather data from between approximately 30 and 50 reporting stations in Catalonia and the Balearic Islands in Spain; and daily, monthly, seasonal and annual local surface weather data from Barcelona, Spain. The weather data are presented in tables, maps, graphs, and narratives. In addition, this book contains regional and local phenologic data in tables and narratives. The majority of the data are given for August 1897 through July 1899. One graph gives mean temperature readings for the decade beginning in January 1887. Extensive monthly data are given for August and September 1896, but no further data are given until August 1897. Monthly data are provided thereafter except for the missing months of November 1897 and March and April 1898. The data from the regional reporting stations are contained in tables up to February 1898 and in maps and narratives thereafter. Tables of growing season data begin in December 1897 and are given through December 1898. Growing season and other phenologic data, both regional and local, are given in narratives throughout the text. The Madrid surface weather data resides in 1 book, 'Resumen de los Trabajos Meteorologicos Correspondientes al Ano 1854 Verificados en el Real Observatorio de Madrid' (C/dg Ao-b) written in Spanish. This book contains tables of hourly, daily, monthly, and yearly surface weather data for Madrid, Spain from December, 1853 to December, 1854. Tables for the days of March 21, June 21, and September 21 contain pressure, temperature, humidity, water vapor, vapor pressure, wind speed and direction, rainfall, evaporation, precipitation, sky cover, and cloud types. Hourly actinometric readings for solar radiation are also given for selected days in March. The tables contain the following daily data, averaged individually: mean pressures, temperatures, humidity, sky cover, water vapor, pressure, soil temperatures at varying depths, and atmospheric electricity; absolute maximum and minimum temperatures; total rainfall, evaporation, and solar radiation; absolute ranges of temperature and pressure; and earth radiative properties at minimum nocturnal air temperature. Additional tables record successive days when the average pressure varied more than 5mm and when mean temperatures varied more than 3 degrees centigrade. The tables contain the following monthly data, averaged individually: mean pressures, humidity, vapor pressures, sky cover, and solar radiation; mean maximum and minimum pressures, temperatures, humidity, and vapor pressure; absolute maximum and minimum pressures, temperatures, humidity, solar radiation, and vapor pressures; total rainfall, wind, and evaporation; number of days without sky cover, of total cloudiness, and with rain; mean ranges of pressure, temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; absolute ranges of temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; difference between total evaporation and rainfall, maximum drop and rise in soil temperature. The tables contain the following seasonal data, averaged individually: mean pressures, temperatures, humidity, sky cover, vapor pressures, and solar radiation; total rainfall, and evaporation; number of days with rain; and mean ranges of pressure, and temperature. The tables contain the following yearly data, averaged individually: mean pressures, temperatures, humidity, sky cover, vapor pressures, and solar radiation; total rainfall, and evaporation; number of days with rain; mean ranges of pressure, and temperature; soil temperature ranges at varying depths for given days, and soil temperature ranges at varying depths. Additional Madrid data resides in 28 books, 'Annuario del Real Observatorio de Madrid: Segundo Ano - 1861 (1860)' (C/dg Ao-1 3461), 'Annuario del Real Observatorio de Madrid: Tercer Ano - 1862 (1861)' (C/dg Ao-1 3462), ' Annuario del Real Observatorio de Madrid: Cuarto Ano - 1863 (1862)' (C/dg Ao-1 3463), 'Annuario del Real Observatorio de Madrid: Quinto Ano - 1864 (1863)' (C/dg Ao-1 3464), and 'Annuario del Real Observatorio de Madrid: Sexto Ano - 1865 (1864)' (C/dg Ao-1 3465). In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. These volumes are the second through sixth volumes of the annual of Real Observatory in Madrid. All of the annuals are concerned primarily with astronomical data, but most of them contain meteorological data for Madrid, the Iberian peninsula or both. Besides information about celestial phenomena, solar and lunar eclipses, planetary and stellar occultations visible in Madrid, these volumes contain tables of ten-day, monthly, and annual surface weather data for Madrid, Spain in 1860. The tables contain the following data: ten-day mean soil temperatures at varying depths; monthly mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, and evaporation; monthly mean (given hour) pressure, temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; monthly absolute maximum and minimum pressure, temperature, vapor pressure, and evaporation; monthly total rainfall, cloudiness, and wind direction; monthly number of days with rainfall, cloudiness, and storms; monthly range of mean pressure, and temperature; annual mean pressure, temperature, and evaporation; annual mean (given hour) pressure, temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; annual absolute maximum and minimum temperature, daily rainfall, and evaporation; annual total rainfall; annual number of days with rainfall or storm, and cloudiness; annual frequency of wind direction; annual range of mean pressure; and annual range of mean (given hour) pressure, humidity, temperature, and vapor pressure.

This book contains tables of monthly and annual surface weather data from Gibraltar (1909-1926). The Malaga data resides in 1 book, 'Sociedad Propagandista del Clima y Embellecimiento de Malaga. Observaciones Climatalogicas (1899-1900)' (C/dg145 s67 29755) written in Spanish and, for all but the first 6 weeks, in French and English. This book contains tables of daily surface weather data from Malaga, Spain for late 1899 and early 1900. The tables contain the following hourly data, determined individually: pressure, air and wet bulb temperature, and wind direction; and remarks on the general state of the weather. The tables contain the following daily data, determined individually: absolute maximum and minimum temperature; total rainfall; 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.
