Group: Summary

   Daily maximum and minimum temperatures for 25 stations around the Great Lakes, 
   1897 to 1983, were given to NSIDC by the NOAA Great Lakes Environmental 
   Research Laboratory (GLERL), Ann Arbor, MI. Daily data can be used to produce 
   daily maximum, minimum and mean temperatures, and seasonal accumulations of 
   freezing and thawing degree days. The statistical data are archived on 25 
   reels of 35 mm microfilm, one roll per station. Microfilm rolls are the 
   appendices to Assel (1980), with updates covering 1978 to 1983 spliced to the 
   end of each microfilm roll. Data sources include U.S. Department of Commerce 
   summaries of meteorological data for Minnesota, Michigan, Wisconsin, Illinois, 
   Pennsylvania and New York, and the monthly meteorological observations 
   published by Environment Canada.

   Stations are: Rochester, NY, Kingston, Ont., Port Dover, Ont., Buffalo, NY, 
   Oswego, NY, Detroit, MI, Chicago, IL, Cleveland, OH, Toledo, OH, Erie, PA, 
   Alpena, MI, Bay City, MI, Port Huron, MI, Green Bay, WI, Milwaukee, WI, Parry 
   Sound, Ont., Fort William, Ont., Thunder Bay, Ont., Escanaba, MI, Traverse 
   City, MI, Muskegon, MI, Toronto, Ont., Houghton, MI, Marquette, MI, Sault Ste. 
   Marie, MI, Duluth, MI.
