The wind data resides in 2 books, 'Die Hohenwindverhaltnisse uber
Deutschland wahrend des Polarjahres' (C/dc K27), and
'Hohenwindmessungen durchgefuhrt von Schiffsoffiziefen der Deutschen
Hondelsflotte Bearbeitet Vom Seeflugreferat der Deutschen Seewarte
April 1930-Sept. 1931' (C/dc 100 H693), both written in German. The
data contained in these books are tables of monthly upper wind data
for ... Germany, Poland, and East Prussia from 1905 to 1933. The wind
parameters included in the first book (C/dc K27) are monthly and
seasonal upper air wind speed deviation from normal averaged over
the period and seasonal mean upper air wind speed for each season and
averaged over the period. There are maps of the mean annual wind
at different levels for the winter of 1932-1933.
The data contained in the second book (C/dc 100 H693) are hourly
observations of the winds at all levels, including the surface.
These data were taken in West Germany for the period April 1930 to
September 1931 only. In addition, daily cloud observations are
also included in the tables.
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.
