TABLE III—continued
In Figures I and II the means arrived at for the winters
and for the ten months are compared in curves for each of the
three stations. The years are indicated in a horizontal direc
tion, and the degrees of temperature are shown in the scale on
the left. These curves show that in those years for which we
have simultaneous observations from the three stations, the
fluctuations in the three curves coincide fairly nearly, especially
in the curves which represent the means for the whole ten months
from November to August. In the curves for the winter tem
perature there a few minor exceptions in 1897 and 1898, when
the changes of temperature at Karmakuli do not entirely
coincide with those at Obdorsk, and in 1905, when the tempera
ture at Pustozersk is relatively a little lower than at Obdorsk
and Karmakuli. But the great fluctuations in the curves
occur simultaneously at all three stations.
As regard the spring and summer months it is difficult to
form an opinion, as the observations at Karmakuli are deficient ;
in the summer of 1909 there were no observations for three
months, and in 1898, 1899, 1903, and 1905 there were no obser
vations for August ; by introducing a mean temperature for
August for the last four years it has been possible to calculate
an approximate figure for the mean temperature for the four
summer months, and this is inserted in parenthesis in Table 11.
The figures arrived at show that the fluctuations in the mean
temperature for these months, the spring and summer months,
coincide approximately at all three stations.
According to this we have the right to assume that the mean
values for the temperatures at Obdorsk may give an approxi
mately correct representation of the fluctuations in the mean
