Description:
Abstract:
The Santo Domingo data resides in 1 book, 'Santo Domingo Cuadro Climatologico: Resumen de las Observaciones de la Ciudad en 8 Anos de 1910 a 1917' (C/hc35 AO-3) written in Spanish. 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 1901, Jan 1902, etc. This book contains a table with daily, monthly, and annual surface weather data for Santo Domingo, the Dominican Republic from 1910 to 1917. The table contains the following data: long-term daily mean maximum and minimum pressure, temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; long-term daily absolute maximum and minimum temperature; long-term daily maximum total rainfall; long-term monthly mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, and rainfall; long-term monthly mean maximum and minimum temperature; long-term monthly mean number of days with rainfall; long-term monthly maximum and minimum total rainfall; long-term monthly maximum and minimum number of days with rainfall; long-term annual mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, and rainfall; long-term annual mean maximum and minimum temperature; long-term annual mean number of days with rainfall; long-term annual maximum and minimum total rainfall; and long-term annual maximum and minimum number of days with rainfall. Additional Santo Domingo data resides in 1 book, ' Santo Domingo. Obras Publicas. Observaciones Meteorologicas, 1914' (C/hc35 AO) written in Spanish.

Cloudiness data are given on a 0 to 10 scale from clear to complete cover. Daily data are missing for 1910 and for May and July 1911. Tables contain the following data: daily mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, cloudiness, and surface wind; daily absolute maximum and minimum temperature; daily total rainfall and wind speed; monthly mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, cloudiness, and surface wind; monthly mean maximum and minimum temperature; monthly absolute maximum and minimum temperature, pressure, humidity, and vapor pressure; monthly total rainfall; annual mean pressure, temperature, humidity, vapor pressure, cloudiness, and surface wind; annual mean maximum and minimum temperature; annual absolute maximum and minimum temperature, pressure, humidity, and vapor pressure; and annual total rainfall. Dominican Republic data resides in 1 book, 'Santo Domingo. Servicio Meteorologico. Informe del Director, 1925' (C/hc35 AO-1 46216) written in Spanish. In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. This book contains monthly and annual surface weather data from the Dominican Republic for 1925. The rainfall data from 72 reporting stations are contained in two tables. Tables contain the following data: monthly total rainfall; monthly number of days with rainfall; monthly maximum daily rainfall with dates of occurence; annual mean monthly rainfall; annual total rainfall; annual number of days with rainfall. The Puerto Plata data resides in 1 book, 'Puerto Plata, Dominican Republic: Weather Notes by the U.S. Consul' (C/hc 35S P97 34310). In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. This book contains tables of monthly and annual surface weather data from two reporting stations in the Puerto Plata region of the Dominican Republic for September 1905 through December 1912. Tables contain the following data: monthly absolute maximum and minimum temperature (Jul 1908 - Jun 1909); monthly total rainfall; annual mean daily pressure, temperature, and humidity; annual absolute maximum and minimum pressure, temperature, and humidity; annual total rainfall; long-term monthly mean temperature; long-term monthly mean maximum and minimum temperature; and long-term monthly absolute maximum temperature. 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.
