Comment:
# = value corrected by Fritz Loewe. Data validated by Gert König-Langlo (Gert.Koenig-Lango@awi.de). Errors in the original data were corrected by using the registration diagrams. The global radiation values were converted from cal/cm**2/min to W/m**2 and divided with 2.2 as suggested from Georgi et al. 1935, page 119. Open questions concerning the calibration remain, see: hdl:10013/epic.31308.d001. See also doi:10.1594/PANGAEA.727180 for the meteorological synoptical observations.
