It’s not very often that history and science come together, but that is specifically what the Old Weather project is all about. Old Weather is a citizen science project where online users transcribe old ship logs to find weather data that can be used by climate scientists. In so doing the citizen excavates forgotten stories of the 19th and 20th century ships straight from the logs.
Many thanks to: Joan Arthur, Alexandra Eveleigh, Fredi Otto and the makers of Old Weather.
