Abstract---Twolongmean surfaceair temperature seriesare presentedfor Armagh Observatory;one based
on twice dailty'spot' temperature readings, 1796-1882,and the other on daily maximum and minimum
temperatures,, 1844-1992.Our data confirm the correlation of temperature with solar cycle length, first
suggestedby Friis-Christensenand Lassen (Science 254, 698, 1991)and, for this site, extend their result a
further 65 years, back to the end of the 18thcentury. Copyright 1996ElsevierScienceLtd
