Sailors, sea-dogs and storms: how old naval documents help us to understand climatic change

Clock icon
18:00 – 19:00 23 Feb 2012

Henry Charnock Lecture Theatre, National Oceanography Centre (NOC), Southampton, SO14 3ZH

Speakers: Dr Dennis Wheeler

The UK has a uniquely rich heritage of Royal Navy logbooks, many from as early as the late 17th century.
Over the past few years an international team of researchers has been abstracting the wealth of climate information that they contain.
This information is now being used to help scientists understand the nature of past climate change and to assist in producing better forecasts of what the future might hold.
Please note if you are driving to NOC, you go through the manned dock security (don't be put off by this, you aren't going the wrong way!) If you are planning to arrive by car before 18:00, please mention this in your registration email.
