New observations from weatherescue.orgΒΆ

The citizen science project Weather Rescue originally set out to transcribe observations from Fort Willan and Ben Nevis (in Scotland), and is now transcribing the DWR data for the beginning of the 20th century (1900-1910).

Weather rescue is providing the data as monthly files for each variable - each line gives the UTC date and time (year, month, day, hour, minute), observation location (latitude and longitude), observation value (here mean-sea-level pressure in hPa) and station name:
