Abstract:
The temperature, rainfall, and sunshine data resides in 1 book, 'Monthly Normals of Temperature, Rainfall, and Sunshine' (C/de 25 AO-95). The data contained in this book are tables and maps of monthly and annual normals for surface temperature, rainfall, and sunshine for the British Isles averaged over the period 1871 to 1910. Monthly and annual variables incorporated in the tables are the following: mean maximum, minimum, and mean temperature; number of days of rainfall, sunshine, and humidity; mean maximum and minimum temperature; total rainfall; temperature ranges; daily mean sunshine; and percent possible sunshine. There are maps of monthly and annual mean maximum and minimum temperature, rainfall, and monthly sunshine hours per day. Hourly and 5-day weather data resides in 14 books, 'Quarterly Weather Reports of the Meteorological Office' (C/de 25 AO-7). The data contained in these books are tables, maps, and graphs of hourly, five-day, and monthly surface pressure, temperature, rainfall, and winds for the British Isles. These are for each month of the period 1869 to 1879. Some of the years contain daily weather maps of pressure and wind. Hourly data include continuous traces of temperature, pressure, and rainfall. These are displayed in the form of graphs only. Daily parameters incorporated in these data are five-day means of temperature and pressure, and records of gale force winds and their duration for a particular speed. Monthly parameters include the following: mean pressure and temperature; maximum and minimum pressure and temperature; and number of hours during the month when strong winds occurred. Hourly and daily climate data resides in 12 books, 'Great Britain Meteor. Office Met. Obs. at Stations of 2nd Order' (C/de 25 AO-3). The data contained in these books are tables of hourly observations and daily and monthly surface climate data for the British Isles. This information is for each year of the period 1875 to 1906. Parameters included in the hourly surface observations are temperature, pressure, vapor pressure, humidity, cloudiness, and winds. The only daily variables are maximum and minimum temperature. Monthly parameters contained in these data are the following: mean temperature, pressure, humidity, and cloudiness; 24 hour maximum rainfall; rainfall and sunshine totals; wind direction frequency; and days of rain, snow, hail, thunderstorms, clear skies, overcast skies, and strong winds. Hourly, daily, and annual surface data resides in 20 books, 'Hourly Readings Obtained from the Self-Recording Instruments at Four Observatories in Connexion with the Meteorological Office' (C/de 25 AO-1). The data contained in these books are tables of hourly, daily, and annual surface weather for the British Isles. These data are for each year of the period 1874 to 1907. Hourly readings were taken from self-recording instruments at selected observatories in the British Isles. Before 1884, the hourly readings were recorded at the Glasgow, Stonyhurst, and Armagh observatories. After 1884, the readings came from the observatories of Aberdeen, Falmouth, and Kew. The hourly parameters included in these observations are pressure, winds, temperature, sunshine, rainfall, vapor pressure, and relative humidity. Daily variables included in these data are the following: maximum and minimum pressure and temperature; sunshine hours; rainfall; vapor pressure; and relative humidity. Annual parameters incorporated in these data are: mean pressure, temperature, relative humidity, and wind velocity for a particular hour of each year, and averaged over the period; and hourly totals of rainfall and sunshine for each year and averaged over the period. Normals for climate events resides in 1 book, 'The Book of Normals of Meteorological Elements for the British Isles' (C/de 25 AO-10). The data contained in this book are tables and maps of daily, weekly, monthly, and seasonal normals for various climate elements. These elements are for the districts and cities in the British Isles averaged over the period 1871 to 1921. Daily parameters included in these data are normal sunshine, rainfall, and temperature. Weekly parameters are maximum, minimum, and mean temperature, and length of day of bright sunshine. Monthly variables incorporated in these data are the following: mean temperature, rainfall, sunshine, and humidity; mean maximum and minimum temperature; total rainfall; temperature ranges; and number of days of rain, hail, thunder, snow, frost, and snow cover. In addition, the years with the highest number of days of snow, hail, and thunder, and the number of winters with a particular number of snow days are tabulated. Seasonal parameters contained in these data are mean, maximum, and minimum temperature. There are maps of the following: daily normal sunshine, rainfall, and temperature; monthly mean maximum and minimum temperature; monthly rainfall; and monthly sunshine hours per day. Surface pressure data resides in 1 book, 'Tables and Diagrams Illustrating the Diurnal Range of Barometric Pressure in the British Isles During the Years This book contains tables and graphs of hourly, monthly, and yearly surface weather pressure data for England during the years 1876-1880. The data include hourly observations of pressure, monthly tables of mean pressure and range of pressure, yearly data of mean pressure, and graphs of mean diurnal variation of the barometer at various stations. The precipitation data resides in 1 book, 'Rainfall Atlas of the British Isles (1811-1834)' (C/de 75 Ra). 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 tables and maps of monthly and annual precipitation data for the British Isles from 1811-1834. Tables contain the following data: annual deviation from normal precipitation; long-term annual mean precipitation; long-term annual absolute maximum and minimum; and long-term annual range of precipitation. A map contains the following data: annual absolute maximum and minimum precipitation; and long-term monthly total precipitation. Wind and precipitation data resides in 1 book, 'The System of the Weather of the British Islands (1803-1824)' (C/de100 m15). In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. This book contains tables of quarterly and annual wind and precipitation data for Great Britain from 1803 to 1824. Tables contain the following data: quarterly number of days with wind direction from the following directions: N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW; annual mean wind speed; annual deviation from normal wind speed; and annual number of days with precipitation from the following wind directions: N, NE, E, SE, S, SW, W, NW. 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.
