Images of International Weather Publications and Observations from 1885 to 1980

Metadata Updated: March 11, 2021

This collection contains digital photographs of foreign paper meteorological records from the 2000+ cubic foot collection of physical records at the NOAA National Climatic Data Center. The images contain in-situ observations from all areas of the globe other than the United States. African observations were the initial geographic area of concentration in the imaging effort but have grown to include other continents and regions. The collection consists of weather observations that were taken almost exclusively between 1885 and 1980. The records are in various native languages.
