Historic Weather Data

BBCi News:

An international team is pioneering a new source of information about climate change: old sailing ships' logbooks.

... The 19th and 18th Century logbooks from UK, Dutch, French and Spanish fleets yield "consistent and reliable" data.

Cliwoc says its work is slowly building up "one of the most accurate pictures yet of daily weather over the oceans."
