Historic Climate Data
During the period of occupation by the Taliban, much of Afghanistan's daily historic climate data was destroyed. What remained were hard copies of summary data for 26 weather stations saved by a staff member in the Ministry of Transportation who kept this data in his home during the occupation. The PEACE Project, in collaboration with the Afghanistan Meteorological Service (AgrMet) and Ministry of Transportation, has converted this data into digital format and this data is being made public here for the first time. The PEACE Project and USAID make no claim regarding the accuracy of this data. Age and handwriting made it difficult at times to positively determine some values on the handwritten sheets. At times, we attempted to note where the data was questionable, but not always. This information is provided for decision support purposes only.
