Title: Precipitation, Frost, Snow, and Ice Data for Finland (1886-1905)
Description:
Abstract:
The precipitation and frost data resides in 1 book, 'Atlas De Finlande: Les Materiaux Meteorologiques et le Climat du Pays' (C/dab J65mm) written in French. The data contained in this book are tables maps, and graphs of monthly, seasonal, and annual precipitation (especially thunderstorms), and frost data for Finland averaged over the period 1886 to 1905. The parameters in tabular form include annual number and days of thunderstorms by latitude and longitude bands, and seasonal number of storms. There are maps of the annual number of days of frost, and yearly precipitation. Graphs included in these data are monthly and seasonal thunderstorms for hourly intervals, and total monthly claps of thunder. The text of this book may contain some useful data (not tabular, map, or graphic form) on the surface parameters of temperature, wind, pressure, snow cover, precipitation, and ice. Snow and ice data resides in 2 books, 'Etat des Glaces et des Neiges en Finland e Pendant L'Hiver' (C/dab AO e) written in French and some German; and 'Schnee Und Eisverhaltnisse in Finland' (C/dab K84s) written in German. The data contained in these books are tables and maps of daily and annual snow, ice, and precipitation data for Finland during the Winters 1892 to 1899. Parameters included in the tabular data for ten-day periods are total snowfall; mean snowfall and snow cover; mean number of snowfall, precipitation and snow cover days, and snow depth. Other parameters included in the tables are: mean and total daily snow amounts; total annual accumulation of snowfall; maximum increase of snow depth; days with and without ice; depth of ice; freezing and thawing dates for bodies of water; density and thickness of the ice; frost dates; depth of the frost; disappearance of the frost; earliest and latest snowfall; dates of maximum snow cover; and snow cover duration. The following maps are contained in the data: number of days for snow cover; snow depth for selected dates; number of days for ice cover on lakes and seas; and for ice breakup dates. 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.
