Climate History Network

A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change

Japan Climate Data Project

jcdpIn 2013, researchers from Seikei University, Teikyo University, and Tokyo Metropolitan University created the new Japan Climate Data Project.  This collaboration aims to recover and catalog Japan’s extensive historical climate records–including weather diaries and phenological observations–as well as early instrumental measurements.  The data section is still in progress (as of 8/2013) but should eventually contain extensive digitized records and later English translations of data.  In the meantime, the site contains a bibliography of publications based on the collections.

My thanks to Dr. Takehiko Mikami for bringing my attention to the project.
