Old Weather

posted by Jason Kottke   Oct 12, 2010

Using journals kept aboard ships and the sweat of volunteers (that’s *you*), Old Weather is attempting to compile a more accurate look at our planet’s recent climate.

Help scientists recover worldwide weather observations made by Royal Navy ships around the time of World War I. These transcriptions will contribute to climate model projections and improve a database of weather extremes. Historians will use your work to track past ship movements and the stories of the people on board.
