Abstract : These summaries constitute a series of compilations which are world-wide in scope. It consists of climatological summaries for selected airfields and for the climatic areas in which they are located. The series includes data for approximately 4,000 stations and consist of 12 volumes. Copies of these volumes are available from the Defense Technical Information Center (DTIC) or the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). The pages are generally self-explanatory with an introduction in each volume. In this summary series, the period of record varies considerably for any given station between particular elements summarized. For example, the period of record for temperature may not be the same as that for cloud cover. This fact renders the normal use of numbers in the columns under the summaries meaningless. Hence, a letter is utilizied under the World-wide Airfield Summary Column in an attempt to provide the specific volume of the series in which a station is located.
