Furthermore, we discovered a large number of series from Zurich, which potentially allow constructing meteorological series back to 1718 (though with a gap) or back to the 1750s. This would constitute a third long Swiss climate series (potentially even the longest, if the very early data prove useful and if the gap can be filled). A minor backward extension of the Gr. St. Bernhard series by two additional years will also be conducted. Most of the original data sheets have already been imaged by us and a considerable fraction has been digitised. In this project we propose to digitise all remaining series found for the three locations. With the additional series and more overlap, a better quality can likely be achieved. Once the data have been digitised, we will perform Quality Control on all series and, depending on the results, include the temperature series for a new merge, followed by homogenisation. Quality control will also be performed for pressure and (where available) precipitation. As the quality of the series to be digitised is not yet known, we cannot guarantee that three new high-quality climate series will emerge. However, in any case we will provide additional information for assessing Swiss preindustrial climate and its variability. The series from Zurich is an entirely new series that is of interest for Swiss climate assessments and research.
