   This data set contains monthly means of meteorological observation data from 
   Russian stations from 1961-2000 (for most stations). The Russian station 
   observations were provided by Vladimir Radionov, Arctic and Antarctic Research 
   Institute (AARI), St. Petersburg, and include 2-meter air temperature, sea 
   level pressure, total and low cloud amount, precipitation, and relative 
   humidity. Data are available in ASCII text format via FTP.
