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.
Data are provided in three separate files having 14 columns, available in two file formats:
1. plain text files (.txt)
2. tab-separated value files (.tsv)
Column 1: Year
Column 2–13: Monthly mean temperature for January through December (unit: °C)
Column 14: Annual mean temperature (unit: °C)
The dataset also includes plots of time series of annual and seasonal mean temperatures in png format.
Further information about the data file content is found in a README text file.
