There is an important and growing need for reliable climatic data, especially from the oceanic regions, to enable a more comprenhesive understanding of current issues in the global warming debate. This project seeks to identify sources of old, previously overlooked, marine materological data from colonial (especially lighthouse) records and from the logbooks of Royal Navy vessels through from the eighteenth century and, thereby, to lend a longer-term perspective to more recent climatic variations. The original documents will be imaged for record and preservation purposes. The data will then be abstracted, quality-controlled and made available for scientific studies through a number of internationally-recognised websites fo climatic data. The images of the more historically valuable logbooks of famous voyages will be made freely available through partner websites for more general consultation. Project start date: 2008-10-01. Project end date: 2009-09-30. (Excerpt from this source)
