Global Daily Climatology Network: Kazakhstan subset

Metadata Updated: November 12, 2020

This dataset is a compilation of in situ daily meteorological observations for Kazakhstan within the framework of joint efforts to create Global Daily Climatology Network (GDCN) among the Kazakhstani Scientific Research Institute of Ecology and Climate of the Ministry of Environment Protection of the Republic of Kazakhstan, All-Russian Research Institute for Hydrometeorological Information-World Data Center of the Federal Service for Hydrometeorology and Environmental Monitoring, Obninsk, Russian Federation, and NOAA National Climatic Data Center, Asheville, North Carolina. Transmitted information was verified versus the original data holdings at the national hydrometeorological archives of the former USSR (prior to 1991) and The Republic of Kazakhstan, and appended when it was necessary. The number of stations varied over the period of record. Variables in the dataset include sea level and station pressure, surface air temperature, relative humidity, wind speed, and observed precipitation.
