Kadow, Christopher; Jaekel, Ilona; Wentzel, Bianca; Bahlo, Marcus; Cubasch, Ulrich (2017): Berlin Climate Record - Daily Precipitation - Inner City - 1876-1908. Dataset #870861 (DOI registration in progress)


Berlin has one of the longest climate records in the world (Cubasch and Kadow, 2011). In the 17th century mainly the family of the astronomer Kirch started measuring the temperature and wrote down general weather patterns. In the beginning of the 18th century the measurements became more regular including multiple measures per day. Over time, more inner city stations appeared but also disappeared. Therefore, this Berlin Climate Record is a moving station, but representable for the inner city of Berlin. Many approaches were combining these datasets including bias correction efforts. With this dataset from 1876-01-01 to 1908-12-31 we reactivate the long inner city precipitation record, related to Kadow et al. 2016. In this study, we digitized, analyzed, and corrected the precipitation data set on the daily time frequency. The dataset has been reconstructed from: "Das Klima von Berlin (III) Niederschlag, Luftfeuchtigkeit, Dampfdruck, Bewölkung, Sonnenscheindauer, Wind, Luftdruck - Abh. des Met. Dienstes der DDR Nr. 118, Band XV, Akademie-Verlag 1976".,
