Five-year mean hourly echo rates for each day in the year are presented for all echoes counted, a total of some seven million, and for echoes of duration greater than or equal to 8 seconds. The diurnal vaiations in hourly echo rates throughout the year are given as five-year means in five-day groups. (Author)
