UK Colonial Registers & Royal Navy logbooks (CORRAL)
"UK Colonial Registers & Royal Navy logbooks (CORRAL), a project that helps address the growing need for reliable climatic data to help researchers in climate change, has been launched. This collaborative project between the MET Office, The National Archives, the British Climatological Data Centre and University of Sunderland is making historical Navy logbooks openly available online for anyone to access. Containing a wealth of rich weather observations and climatic data, these logbooks offer climate scientists an astonishingly good record of climate data that can help inform climate studies today"
