The Alberta Hail Project Meteorological and Barge-Humphries Radar Archive

Between 1957 and 1991 the Alberta Research Council collected a significant amount of meteorological data in Central Alberta. This research involved the collection of information about hail and rainfall; data collected as a result of cloud seeding experiments; and a variety of radar data collected via airplane and ground radar centres.In the 1990's, the data was identified as being at risk of becoming unusable. The University of Alberta Libraries embarked on a project to preserve and archive the information. The full archive of primary and supporting data for this project is available for download from the University of Alberta Libraries Dataverse. The data includes surface hailfall and rainfall data (1957-1985) and aircraft transponder data (1978-1985) for Alberta.
