A Quality-Controlled Dataset for Long-Term U.S. Snowfall Trends
Entry ID: NCAR_DS510.5


Summary
Abstract: NCDC's U.S. Cooperative Summary of Data (DSI3200) dataset was screened for stations with long continuous observations for use in assessing 20th-century U.S. snowfall trends. The result is a subset of 424 stations with quality-controlled snowfall, precipitation, and temperature data for snow-season months (October through May). Most of the stations have observations that begin prior to the winter of 1930-31, making for station periods of longer than 77 winters. Several stations have data as far back as the 1890s.
