The soil data resides in 1 book, 'Uber Die Bodentemperaturen In
St. Petersburg Und Nukuss' (C/db W668b), and is written in German. The
data contained in this book are tables of hourly and daily mean soil
temperatures at different depths. They are for the locations of
St. Petersburg in Russia, Nukuss in Ubzek, and Konisberg in Prussia
from 1873 to 1877. The parameters for each individual year ... contained
in these tables are daily observations of soil temperatures and
monthly mean soil temperatures for all and individual hours. The
following soil temperature parameters are averaged over the five year
period: daily mean, maximum, and minimum; monthly mean absolute
variability; and mean annual.
The temperature oscillation data resides in 1 book,' La Marche Diurne
De La Temperature a St. Petersbourg' (C/db R993m), and is written in
French. The data contained in this book are tables showing the
periodic diurnal temperature oscillations under clear and cloudy
conditions at St. Petersberg averaged over the period 1842 to 1862.
The mean frequency of clear and cloudy days is given for this
location. There are line graphs showing the average temperature for
clear and cloudy days at each hour of the day.
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.
