Kiwis asked to help unlock century-old weather secrets
« on: October 30, 2018, 11:25:58 PM »
Kiwis are being called upon to help piece together more than a century of weather records – including those recorded by members of Captain Robert Scott's doomed trip to the South Pole in 1912.

Scott and his four-man team perished in Antarctica and their bodies were left on the ice - but the weather records they made on their expedition were retrieved.

Now those records – plus millions of daily observations made by early explorers, people on whaling ships, cargo ships and lighthouses around New Zealand and the Southern Ocean before the 1950s – are needed by scientists trying to find out more about climate change.
