[{"title":"Stockholm Historical Weather Observations \u2014 Maximum snow depth each winter since 1904\/05","summary":"This dataset contains observed maximum snow depth in each winter from the winter season 1904\/05 through 2018\/19 at the old astronomical observatory in Stockholm. Data are provided as (i) maximum snow depth in December, and (ii) maximum snow depth during December\u2060\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a\u2060\u2060April.\r\n\r\nAlthough weather observations have been made continuously at the old astronomical observatory in Stockholm since 1754, regular snow depth observations are not available before the winter of 1904\/05.","citations":"","comments":"The observation site is included in the national station network managed by the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrological Institute (SMHI), with station number 98210 (manual station) and 98230 (automatic station), but data in the current dataset can differ from those in the SMHI database.\r\n\r\n\r\nThis dataset was compiled as follows:\r\n\r\nData for 1904\/05\u2060\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a1950\/51 was provided personally by staff at the SMHI.\r\n\r\nData for 1951\/52\u2060\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200a2018\/19 was obtained using data from the SMHI resource \u00d6ppna Data, followed by identification of the maximum values in December and December\u2060\u2060\u200a\u2013\u200aApril for each winter.\r\n\r\n\r\nSnow depth is currently measured with a ruler or measuring stick every day at 7:00 (Swedish normal time, i.e. UTC+01:00). The measurement is made at a precision of one centimetre and the reported snow depth should preferably be a mean value over at least five measurements within a few metres.\r\nMore information on how snow depth measurements are made at Swedish meteorological stations is available, in Swedish, at the SMHI website.","category":"Atmosphere","subcategory":"Weather observations","keywords":"Snow; Sweden; Stockholm","scientist":"Anders Moberg","firstname":"Anders","lastname":"Moberg","address":"Department of Physical Geography, Stockholm University","postalcode":"SE-106 91","city":"Stockholm","province":"","country":"Sweden","parameters":"Earth science > Terrestrial hydrosphere > Snow\/ice > Snow depth","location":"Continent > Europe > Northern Europe > Scandinavia > Sweden","progress":"Completed","language":"English","project":"","publisher":"Bolin Centre Database","version":"1","constrains":"None","access":"Free"}]
