Notes

  • -  "The Climatological Database for the World's Oceans (CLIWOC) represents the culmination of a major project funded by the European Union, and pursued by a large team of researchers in organizations and universities around the world. The database consists of 287,114 logbooks written aboard Dutch, English, French, and Spanish sailing ships. The vast majority of these logbooks date from between 1750 and 1850, yet four ship logbooks were incorporated that predate 1750. These were centuries of European imperial expansion, and so the logbooks record the activities of sailors - both civilian and military - in oceans that span the entire globe."--Climatological Database for the World's Oceans website.
  • -  "In late 2018, HistoricalClimatology.com Director Dagomar Degroot - who has used CLIWOC extensively - presented new findings from the database at a Past Global Changes (PAGES) workshop. Mapper and programmer Steven Ottens saw an image of the presentation on social media and realized that he could make CLIWOC much more accessible than it had been. ​Thanks to Steven, the entire database is now hosted in accessible, commonly used formats on HistoricalClimatology.com."--Climatological Database for the World's Oceans website.
  • -  The dataset is available as an Open Office Spreadsheet, Tab-Delimited Text File, and a Geopackage.
