Hourly, Monthly, Seasonal, and Annual Surface Weather Data Including Precipitation and Temperature for the U.S. (1871-1880)
Entry ID: NCL00284_285_287


Summary
Abstract: The U.S. rainfall and temperature data resides in 1 book, 'Maps of Rainfall and
Temperature of the U.S. Tenth Census 1880' (C/gf Ao 039). 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
1900, etc.

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 maps of monthly, seasonal, and annual temperature and
precipitation data for military posts in the United States for 1880. Maps
contain the following data: monthly mean temperature; seasonal total
precipitation; annual mean temperature; annual absolute maximum and minimum
temperature; and annual total precipitation.

Surface weather data resides in 1 book, 'Report upon United States
Geographical Surveys' (C/gf Ao E57g). In these summaries, definitions are as in
the above. This book contains tables and graphs of hourly surface weather data
for the USA from 1871 to 1873. Tables contain hourly readings for mean
pressure, temperature, humidity, cloudiness, wind, vapor pressure, and wet bulb
temperature. Graphs contain hourly readings for pressure, temperature, and
vapor pressure.

Additional surface weather data resides in 1 book, 'Report Upon United States
Geographical Surveys' (C/gf Ao E57g). In these summaries, definitions are as in
the above. This book contains tables of hourly surface weather data for the
Western USA from 1871 to 1873. Tables contain hourly mean pressure,
temperature, humidity, cloudiness, wind, and vapor pressure.

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.
