Daily, Monthly, and Annual Surface Weather Data for Angola (1879-1925)Entry ID: NCL00282_286_290
Abstract: The Loanda, Angola data resides in 1 book, 'Loanda Observatorio Meteorologico
Resumes' (C/f e Ao-Ar). 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
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 graphs of monthly surface weather data for Loanda,
Angola from 1901 to 1910. Graphs contain monthly mean pressure, temperature,
humidity, and precipitation.
The Angola data resides in 1 book, 'Estudo Meteorologico de Angola' (C/fe AX1).
In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. This book contains graphs
of annual surface weather data for Angola from 1879 to 1915. Graphs contain the
following data: annual mean pressure, temperature, humidity and vapor pressure;
annual mean maximum and minimum temperature; and annual absolute maximum and
Additional Angola data resides in 6 books, 'Resumo das Observacoes
Meteorologicas Efectuadas Hos Observatorios e Postos de Angola' (C/fe Ao - Ar).
In these summaries, definitions are as in the above. These volumes contain
tables of daily and monthly surface weather data for Angola from 1914 to 1925.
Tables contain the following data: daily mean pressure, temperature, humidity,
wind, vapor pressure, evaporation, and sunshine; daily absolute maximum and
minimum pressure and temperature; daily total precipitation; monthly mean
temperature, humidity, and vapor pressure; monthly absolute maximum and minimum
temperature; and monthly total precipitation.
These books are part of the foreign meteorological data collection held by the
NOAA Central Library in Washington, DC. Information in this collection dates
