Marine surface meteorological and actinometric observations from Russian Research Vessels

| DOI: 10.5065/HWG3-G090

Meteorological and actinometric (radiation) observations made aboard Russian Research Vessels were digitized from cruise reports and logbooks at the All-Russia Research Institute of Hydrometeorological Information (RIHMI). The data cover 1937-2000 with the large majority in 1970-1992. There were 3753 documents (logbooks) with meteorological observations and 1125 documents with actinometric observations digitized. This work was support by a NSF grant.

Citation counts are compiled through information provided by publicly-accessible APIs according to the guidelines developed through the project. If journals do not provide citation information to these publicly-accessible services, then this citation information will not be included in RDA citation counts. Additionally citations that include dataset DOIs are the only types included in these counts, so legacy citations without DOIs, references found in publication acknowledgements, or references to a related publication that describes a dataset will not be included in these counts.
