Ponta Delgada

Within the scope of the two major international projects of long-term reanalysis for the 20th century coordinated by NOAA and ECMWF, the Instituto Dom Luiz from the University of Lisbon has digitised a large number of long-term daily and monthly climate records from stations in Portugal and former Portuguese Colonies. Recently we have finished the digitization of precipitation values from Ponta Delgada (capital of the Azores archipelago) obtaining an almost complete daily precipitation series, with the exception of some years (1864/1872; 1878/1879; 1888/1905; 1931; 1936 and 1938).

The Ponta_Delgada_Daily_Precipitation_1872_2012.xls file contains the daily rainfall data from 1873 until 2012 from Ponta Delgada station (37°44’N, 25°40’W, 77 m) obtained from the "Annaes do Observatório Infante D. Luiz” and from 1947 to 2012 were supplied by the Instituto Português do Mar e da Atmosfera (IPMA).
