Help us to create Australia’s longest daily weather record

To understand extreme conditions in Australia – such as drought, bushfires, heatwaves and floods – we need to look back at these events in the past. But there are a few missing pieces of the puzzle in Australia’s early weather records.

This is where you come in.
Anyone can become a citizen scientist to help predict future climate changes.
By decoding historical handwritten weather journals, you’ll help close a 10-year gap in Australia’s daily weather from the late 1800s.
We need your help to digitise old journal records recently uncovered in Adelaide that will help link together our country’s climate from the earliest colonial years from 1843 to 1856.

We have some great new citizen science projects coming up in 2020. Sign up to our e-newsletter for the latest updates.
