Group: Summary

   The Historical Soviet Daily Snow Depth Version 2 (HSDSD) product on CD-ROM 
   updates and replaces HSDSD Version 1. The new version contains an additional 
   ten years of data, improved data quality control, an HTML interface, and a 
   Java tool for data browsing and extraction. Data now span from 1881 (for the 
   earliest operational stations) through 1995. Other parameters include snow 
   cover percent, snow characteristics, site characterization, and quality flags. 
   Data are in ASCII format.

   The HSDSD product is based on observations from 284 World Meteorological 
   Organization (WMO) stations throughout Russia and the former Soviet Union. The 
   area covered is 35 to 75 degrees north latitude and 20 to 180 degrees east 
   longitude. The State Hydrometeorological Service in Obninsk, Russia, sent the 
   data to NSIDC through the bilateral US-USSR Working Group Eight data exchange 
   program.

   The development of this data product was funded through NOAA's Environmental 
   Services Data and Information Management (ESDIM) program, and through the 
   support of the NOAA/NESDIS National Geophysical Data Center. Data are 
   available on one CD-ROM available for download via FTP.
