1 Introduction
Armagh Observatory (6 o 39 0
.8 W, 54 o 21 0
.2 N) has one of the longest series of me-
teorological records from a single site in the UK or Ireland. These records will
be made available to the public on the Armagh Observatory Climate Web-site
http://climate.arm.ac.uk where access is possible to over 7,000 pages of raw, daily,
meteorological data stretching back to 1795, as well as calibrated and standard-
ised meteorological series for scienti c and educational use. This standardised
data archive includes daily observations of rainfall, sunshine, temperature, pressure,
cloud, humidity and wind.
The calibrated soil temperature data recorded at 1 foot/30 cm and 4 foot/100 cm
depth from 21 April 1904 to 31 December 2002 are presented here together with
details of the calibration procedure and corrections made for location and for changes
from Imperial to Metric depths.
