Uncovering the secrets of the environmental past – you can help!

Weather Rescue project is seeking volunteer citizen scientists to bring historic weather observations into the reach of digital science. Millions of meteorological observations are waiting for volunteers to enter them into digital format, and so make then accessible for climate research.  And of course where improvements in climate research take place, there’s scope to improve hydrological understanding too – not least extremes of wet and dry.  See the feature article and the link to the project here on BBC news.
