Ukrainian early (pre-1850) historical weather observations
Ukrainian gridded monthly air temperature (min, max, mean) and atmospheric precipitation data (1946-2020)

Ukrainian early (pre-1850) historical weather observations

The data set contains pre-1850 sub-daily meteorological observations (mainly air temperature and atmospheric pressure) conducted at eight Ukrainian meteorological stations: Kyiv, Kharkiv, Poltava, Kamyanets-Podilsky, Lugansk, Dnipro, Kherson and Odesa. The data set to be downloaded is the zip-archive containing Excel tables with the digitized observations and the pdf-file with metadata.
