“The further back you look the further forward you see” – Winston Churchill
Led by the international research initiative ACRE (Atmospheric Clirculation Reconstructions over the Earth) the workshop was able to discuss future work on areas such as:
- recovery of historical data;
- the weather reconstruction/reanalysis itself, and:
- the use of the reanalysis outputs for climate science, applications and impacts studies and as a wider educational tool.
The ACRE workshop builds on other Climate Research projects funded by JISC including the Historic Navy Log Books project (CORRAL) that is attempting to use 18th Century Navy logbooks to map historic climate patterns to help inform current climate research.
