Old Weather Project

The Old Weather project seeks to "recover worldwide weather observations to help improve climate model predictions." Toward that goal, the Old Weather project relies on the power of "citizen science" crowd sourcing to transcribe historical weather patters recorded in logbooks by sailors on research vessels from the 19th and 20th century.
