Estonian Mean Snow Depth and Duration (1891-1994)

View Catalog Page

Entry ID

G01174

Summary

This data set contains the number of days of snow cover in days per year, and three 10-day snow depth means per month in centimeters from stations across Estonia. The days of snow cover data extend from 1891 through 1994, while the snow depth means extend from 1891 through 1990. Some stations for some years have two data entries, one for a protected collection area, and one for an exposed collection area. Jaak Jaagus of the University of Tartu in Estonia contributed these data to the National Snow and Ice Data Center. Data are available via ftp.

Quality

NSIDC removed stations from the station list for which there were no data listed in the data files. Users of these data should be aware that snowfall is notoriously difficult to measure. Since snow depth varies strongly in space and detailed information on the observation locations is not available, care should be taken in using these data.
