SEARCHJoelle Gergisjgergis@unimelb.edu.au, lindenclaire.ashcroft@urv.catThe Southeastern Australian Recent Climate History Project (SEARCH) was a multidisciplinary ARC Linkage initiative involving libraries, universities and government organisations. The aim of the project was to use historical instrumental, documentary and palaeoclimate data to recover the climate of southeastern Australia for the past 200–500 years. http://climatehistory.com.au/, digitised data (39 sources covering 1788–1860) available at https://zenodo.org/record/75981788–1860Southeastern Australia (NSW, VIC, TAS, SA)Monthly pressure, temperature, rainfall and raindaysYes

Weather DetectiveChrista PudmenzkyChrista.Pudmenzky@usq.edu.auWeather Detective is a citizen science portal that engages the public in digitising the ship logbooks in the collection of QLD Government Meteorologist Clement Wragge.More than 11,000 citizen scientists have so far digitised over 525000 observationshttp://www.weatherdetective.net.au/1882–1903Global oceansSubdaily pressure, air and sea temperature, wind direction and strength, and weather descriptionsYes

OzDocsJoelle Gergisjgergis@unimelb.edu.auThe citizen science component of SEARCH, OzDocs is a portal and repository for qualitative and quantitative historical weather and climate information. You can search for newspaper articles related to weather and climate terms found by volunteers and complete digitisation tasks set by SEARCH researchers. http://ozdocs.herokuapp.com/ (currently under maintenance)1788–1900Southeastern Australia (NSW, VIC, TAS, SA)Subdaily pressure, temperature, rainfall, raindays, and weather descriptionsNo

Todd TeamMac Benoymac.benoy@bom.gov.auThe team has imaged S.A. Regional Office weather folios 1879-1954 which includes daily and intra-daily synoptic charts for Australasia, newsclippings and other weather observations. Also imaged and digitised are Glaishier readings 1857-1956 and Cape Borda Lighthouse intraday 1862-1900. The team also has images for Adelaide, Hobart and several SA Lighthouses. The collection comprises 100,000+ images and 330,000 pressure readings stored in the ISPD.http://www.charlestodd.net/MERIT/

Belfield TeamHoward Bridgmanhoward.bridgman@newcastle.edu.auThis project is being conducted by a team of meteorologists, historians and archive curators at the University of Newcastle who were given the weather diaries of grazier Algernon Belfield from Eversleigh, NSW. The data were digitised by a group of citizen scientists, and are now being analysed for quality and climate information. Additional sources of data have also been uncovered with colleagues from the University of New England.1882–1922New England, NSWSub daily pressure, temperature, rainfall, raindays, humidity, dew point temp, windNot yet

Shackelton and High Latitudes TeamChris Turney and Zoe Thomasc.turney@unsw.edu.au,z.thomas@unsw.edu.auThe project is conducted by a team at UNSW, and aims to improve the observational network across the high latitudes of the Southern Hemisphere, by use of the log books from whaling stations and expedition ships. The rescue of these important historical data enable a greater understanding modes of climate variability and environmental changes over the last century.

TIDEAusKathleen McInneskathleen.mcinnes@csiro.auThe Tidal Information and Digitisation Exercise for Australia (TIDEAus) is a small activity within the Earth System Sciences Hub of the National Environmental Science Program. The focus is to increase the number of digital tide gauge records around Australia that commence in the late 19th or early 20th Century from the 2 currently available. The Williamstown record in Melbourne is the current focus. Marigrams from 1926-1964 have been imaged. Daily high/low tide books from 1873-1976 have also been imaged along with other associated information. Digitisation of the records from 1951 to 1964 has been completed.1875-1964Australiasea level

Hazards, Tipping Points, Adaptation and Collapse in the Indo-Pacific WorldJames Warren & Joseph Christensenj.christensen@murdoch.edu.auThis ARC Linkage Project investigates inter-relationships between natural cycles and events, and social and political cycles and events, in Indo-Pacific history post-1000. Case-studies include reconstruction of historic storm surge events on the Northwest Australian coast to facilitate comparisons with modern (i.e. post-1960s) storm surges associated with tropical cyclone activity http://www.murdoch.edu.au/Research-capabilities/Asia-Research-Centre/The-Research/Indian-Ocean-World/Mainly early 20th century but extending into second half of the 19th centuryNorthwest Australiasea level & tides (storm surge higeht); barometric pressure, wind speed and rainfall (cyclones) No
