Title: Daily, Monthly, Seasonal and Annual Climatic Data, Including Temperature and Wind Data for the Sachsen Region of Germany (1864-1890)
Description:
Abstract:
Climatic data resides in 2 books, 'Das Klima des Konigreiches Sachsen' (C/dc 320 L-wk), and 'Die Hauptsachlichsten Resultate aus den m den Jahren 1864-1900 im Konigreich Sachsen Anstellten Meteorologischen Beobachtungen', both written in German. The data contained in these books are tables and maps of daily, monthly, and annual surface climatic data for the Sachsen region of Germany from 1864 to 1890. Daily parameters for each individual month included in these data are: ten-day number of wind direction hours; daily river water levels; daily precipitation totals; and strong wind frequency. Monthly parameters for each individual month are the following: mean temperature, winds, pressure, and sunshine hours; mean maximum and minimum temperature; absolute maximum and minimum temperature, and precipitation total; evaporation totals; wind hours for different categories; and number of days of frost, glaze, precipitation of a certain intensity, absolute dry weather, snowfall, snow cover, hail, sleet, thunderstorms, and precipitation periods. Monthly variables averaged over the period, are: mean temperature, humidity, winds, pressure, vapor pressure, and sunshine hours; precipitation totals; rainfall; snowfall; mean maximum and minimum temperature, cloudiness, evaporation; absolute maximum and minimum temperature, humidity, and 24 hour precipitation total; and number of days of frost, glaze, measurable precipitation, thunderstorms, rainfall, sleet, snow cover, and snowfall. Annual parameters for each individual year incorporated in these data are: mean temperature and cloudiness; absolute maximum and minimum humidity, cloudiness, and precipitation; and evaporation totals. Annual variables averaged over the period include: mean temperature, humidity, cloudiness, winds, precipitation, and snowfall; absolute maximum and minimum humidity; and mean precipitation. In addition, for the second book listed, each of these variables is also tabulated at different altitudes (50-1200m), and there is information on summer and winter foliage development. Also in the second book, there are maps and graphs of the following: mean isotherms; yearly mean of the vapor pressure; yearly precipitation amounts; deviation of the temperature from the annual mean; deviation of the precipitation from the annual total; and sunspot and rainfall relationships. Additional climatic data resides in 1 book, 'Das Klima von Sachsen Die Orliche und Zeilijche Verieitung der Mittleren Lufttemperartur' (C/dc 320 L-wa) written in German. The data contained in these papers are tables and maps of monthly,seasonal, and annual surface climatic data for the Sachsen region of Germany averaged over the period 1864 to 1890. Monthly parameters included in the tables are: mean temperature, wind direction, and wind speed for a given direction, and percent frequency of wind direction and wind speed. The seasonal and annual mean temperature is also tabulated. Maps included in these data are monthly, seasonal, and annual mean isotherms, and vegetation periods for the growing seasons. 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.
