Computer assisted screening, correction, and analysis of historical weather measurements

  title={Computer assisted screening, correction, and analysis of historical weather measurements},
  author={Dorian J. Burnette and David W. Stahle},
  journal={Computers & Geosciences},
A computer program, Historical Observation Tools (HOB Tools), has been developed to facilitate many of the calculations used by historical climatologists to develop instrumental and documentary temperature and precipitation datasets and makes them readily accessible to other researchers. The primitive methodology used by the early weather observers makes the application of standard techniques difficult. HOB Tools provides a step-by-step framework to visually and statistically assess, adjust… CONTINUE READING
