Congratulations to one of the Zooniverse’s senior projects – oldWeather (http://oldweather.org) is celebrating its third birthday tomorrow!
Recovering all the old climate records we need is a big job: over the last three years we’ve read more than a million pages of logbooks, but there are many more to look at, so we still need your help. The present logs on the site are of voyages to the Arctic – not an easy place to sail, so there’s occasional drama and disaster to go with the scientific records of ice and weather. If you can help, please go to http://oldweather.org and pick your ship. Don’t forget: the person who classifies the most pages on each ship becomes the captain 🙂
There are many more details and examples on the blog (http://blog.oldweather.org), and a friendly and helpful community on the project forum (http://forum.oldweather.org). Remember, to keep up with all news, results and amazing images from Old Weather you can like us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Google+.
