Group: Summary

   This data set contains historical data for 35 Russian stations located between 
   approximately 117-145 E and 55-72 N. Data were collected between 1882-1994, 
   but the time period covered by each station and the parameters measured are 
   variable.

   Daily measurements of snow depth were taken from three snow measuring rods 
   placed in a meteorological enclosure. In individual cases, when the 
   meteorological enclosure was unrepresentative of the surroundings in respect 
   to snow cover formation, the snow measuring rods were placed near the station 
   on a specially selected plot.  The daily mean was calculated by averaging the 
   readings from the three rods, rounded to the nearest whole centimeter. If the 
   average was less than 0.5 cm, the mean was considered zero, and if it was 
   greater than or equal to 0.5 cm, it was considered 1 cm. If snow, ice, or melt 
   water was absent at one of the rods, the mean depth was calculated by dividing 
   the sum of the readings by three.

   The daily data were then averaged at the end of a ten-day period into a single 
   value. This averaging was done three times per month, with the final period in 
   the month containing from eight to 11 days of data, depending on the month.

   Air and ground temperature measurements were taken with mercury thermometers 
   with high inertiality.

   Measurements were taken as part of the Land-Atmosphere-Ice Interactions - 
   Arctic Transitions in the Land-Atmosphere System (LAII-ATLAS) program. The 
   research project was funded by the Arctic System Sciences (ARCSS) Program, 
   grant numbers OPP-9721347 and OPP-9732126.
