  • In general NMHSs have realized the necessity of data rescue; however a number of them are not aware in detail of the amount of data slumbering in their archives. On the other hand a number of countries provided detailed insight about existing data (digitized and non-digitized).
  • Most of the countries have a free data policy and are willing to share their data, only for some countries data policy is still a stumbling block.
  • The highest priority of data to be rescued is on temperature and precipitation, followed by wind, snow, humidity, sunshine, clouds and air pressure.
  • There are more monthly data than daily data available.
  • Not all countries responded to our request, especially those outside Europe.
