Digitize Historic Weather Data

International Environmental Data Rescue Organization (IEDRO) What we need now are volunteers to assist in digitizing the historic weather data we recently received from El Salvador. Our newest website is: WeatherWizards.org, which is a citizen-scientist/crowd sourcing site designed to get critical historic weather data digitized for the use of all the world’s scientists. We would appreciate you registering as a site volunteer and giving WeatherWizards.org a try (my 10 year old granddaughter is one of our most prolific digitizers). IEDRO estimates that the world loses 500,000 critical weather records every day, particularly in underdeveloped countries, to improper storage, loss and material, and deterioration. These data tell the stories of past weather events such as extreme winds, precipitation and storms, and thus, could have been used to better predict drought, floods, the spread of disease (i.e. malaria, West Nile virus, dengue fever, yellow fever), and the impacts of climate change. Without the rescue of and access to this data, regions across the globe see unnecessary loss of infrastructure, agriculture, the economy and human life.
