awesome project: liberate old weather data from log books
Want to help scientists better understand our climate? Easy 1. 2. 3.
Exciting #citizenscience project - - You can help gather data on historic climate patterns by transcribing Arctic and worldwide weather observations recorded in ship's logs since the mid-19th century.
Stefan Brönnimann How can #citizenscience contribute to Data Rescue? Good Example: "Bad" Example: 10% of climate data rescue digitalization projects "use" citizen science
Check out Old Weather, a project where you can transcribe historic records of weather data (like from old whaling vessels) to help scientists studying climate change
To kick off #EarthWeek, I'd like to share some of my favorite community science programs: + + + + + + +
Yes, the ship data is vital, and it is from lots of individual voyages (see ). Perhaps you could help us rescue more observations and fill in some of the gaps? and
I just learned about from #csvconf & I am very down. Wikisourcerers to the rescue!
This is a great article about the public science opportunities to interpret sea ice & weather observations from ship logbooks since the 1800s. + Article: + Get Involved: [Animation shows 100 years of #Arctic sea ice in December]
