Historical African Data Physics and Stamp Collecting: Comments Arising from "The NOAA Integrated Surface Irradiance Study (ISIS)-A New Surface Radiation Monitoring Program" Comments on "Societal Aspects of Weather: Report of the Sixth Prospectus Development Team of the US. Weather Research Program to NOAA and NSF" Appearance of a Supertyphoon in a Global Climate Model Simulation Historical African Data fact, than our project had resources or desire to digi- tize. Monthly variables such as the number of rain days Africa is an interesting and challenging continent or the number of thunderstorm days, and the daily or for climate analysis. Various regions in Africa have three times per day measurements of, for example, experienced dramatic changes in climate that have wind speed and direction, temperature, relative humid- severely impacted the human, animal, and plant com- ity, and cloud amount are important and largely un- munities. For example, the early 1910s and early 1980s tapped sources of information about African climate. were particularly dry in sub-Saharan Africa (Lamb and In North America and Europe there have been signifi- Peppier 1991).
