Project

Digitization, quality control and development of daily and monthly air temperature and pressure data series until 1998 was undertaken as part of the project IMPROVE - Improved Understanding of Past Climatic Variability from Early Daily European Instrumental Sources. Project funding: EU 4th Framework Programme, 1998–1999. Contract: ENV4-CT97-0511. Co-ordinator: Dario Camuffo, Consiglio Nazionale delle Ricerche, Istituto di Scienze dell'Atmosfera e del Clima, Padova, Italy. PI at Stockholm University: Anders Moberg.

Description

Data with barometer observation values are provided in separate files for the following time periods:

1756–1858

1859–1861

1862–1937

1938–1960

1961–2012

2013–2018

For the last period, data are provided separately for both a manual and an automatic weather station.

All data are availabe in two file formats:

1. plain text files (.txt)

2. tab-separated value files (.tsv)

Detailed description of the content in each file is found in a README text file.

The data have been quality controlled as described by Moberg et al. (2002), but are not subject to any homogenization or correction for known instrumental biases.
