   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.

Group: 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.
