Abstract:

This data set was distributed by NSIDC until October, 2003, when it was withdrawn from distribution because it duplicates the NOAA National Climatic Data Center (NCDC) data set DSI-3720. The NCDC data set is revised and updated beyond what was distributed by NSIDC. This archive consists of monthly precipitation measurements from 622 stations located in the Former Soviet Union.

Purpose:
