World Weather Records, 1961-1990

| DOI: 10.5065/MDT7-1X71

The first series of World Weather Records (WWR) was published in 1927 by the Smithsonian Institution and covered the full period of record up to 1920. After that, decadal series were published, and over time, responsibility for publication passed to the U.S. National Weather Service and then to the National Climatic Data Center. Archived here are digitized versions of the 1961-1970, 1971-1980, and 1981-1990 decadal series.

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.
