Finally, many additional early kite observations from Europe but also from the United States (for which they are only available as monthly-mean values in CFIUAN) have been digitized, and kite stations additional to the ones in CHUAN can be seen for Greenland, Russia, China, Indonesia, and southeastern Africa.
