Abstract:
The SnowStorm Data: Long-Term Data Sets About Snowstorms in the United States is a study prepared by Changnon Climatologist, in cooperation with NOAA's National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) as part of a project awarded through the NOAA Office of Global Programs. A goal of this 3 year project was to develop 5 data sets each pertaining to different aspects of snowstorms in the conterminous United States during the 20th century. The CD-ROM contains the following data sets: * Point (station) values of snowstorms of 6 inches or more in 1 or 2 days, 1901-2000, across the entire United States. * Descriptions of features of mapped snowstorms for 1951-2000 in the eastern two thirds of the United States. * Snowstorm catastrophes, causing greater than $1 million in damages, during 1949-2000, for the entire United States. * The frequency values for once in 5-year snow amounts, once in 10-year snow amounts, and record highest snowstorm amounts during 1948-2000, as based on 1- to 2- day storms, and for the eastern two-thirds of the United States. * Winds, precipitation, and temperatures associated with the top ten heaviest snowstorms at selected first-order stations for 1950-2000, in the eastern two-thirds of the United States. To make a wide range of climatic data available to researchers and the public. Pricing is dependent on customer order specifications. Please contact NCDC for information on fees and terms for retreiving the Data Set or Product. SUPPLEMENTAL INFORMATION: technical report CURRENTNESS REFERENCE: Ground Condition
