    Noting your interest in historical meteorology, you might be interested to know what we’ve done with the Charles Todd Weather folios – 26,000 images of 11,000 days of weather – 1878-1909 NAA series number D1384. Also, Wragges 1000+ ship logs have been digitised at http://www.weatherdetective.net.au.
    Our volunteer team have sent 330,000 datapoints to the NOAA to fuel climate reanalyses models for the SW Pacific area. The diligence of our pioneer scientists is feeding modern climate change analysis, see reanalyses.org/
