Daily Precipitation Sums at Coastal and Island Russian Arctic Stations, 1940-1990 (G02164)

Appendix B: A Comparison of G02164 Station Coverage with NCDC Dataset DSI-3720 and NSIDC Dataset G02141

A check for duplicate stations across datasets R2, R6, R7 was made by Bruce Raup, NSIDC, February 2004. Results in which stations from R7 (NSIDC G02164, "Daily Precipitation Sums at Coastal Russian Arctic Stations 1940-1990") appear in one of the mentioned data sets are detailed below.

R2: "USSR Monthly Precipitation for 622 Stations 1891-1999," NCDC data set DSI-3720. This data set includes all data in the Global Historical Climate Network and more, and has corrections for wind, wetting, and gauge type.

R6: "Meteorological Data from the Russian Arctic, 1961-2000," NSIDC data set G02141. This data set includes monthly precipitation totals without corrections, with the exception of the post 1966 wetting correction.

Number of duplicates in each dataset combination:

R2R6R7:   1 (23242)
