A network of interdisciplinary scholars studying past climate change
HistoricalClimatology.com was founded shortly before the Climate History Network, as a way of introducing climate history and historical climatology to academics, policymakers, and the general public, in way that highlighted their relevance to global warming. Over the years, it has grown from a research blog maintained by Dagomar Degroot, into a larger online resource that now annually receives approximately 100,000 unique hits. This site is about the emerging discipline of climate history, but HistoricalClimatology.com is all about linking the insights of that discipline to environmental issues that are relevant today.
This week, PhD Candidate Benoit S. Lecavalier joined HistoricalClimatology.com as an editor who help update two new sections: the first lists the best climate stories published on the web each month, and the second presents some of the most intriguing new scholarly articles relevant to climate history.
We are also regularly updating our “projects” page, which will now provide short descriptions of ongoing, interdisciplinary research undertaken by historical climatologists and climate historians. This week, Dagomar Degroot and postdoctoral fellow Josh MacFadyen (re)launched our projects page with descriptions of their ongoing projects. We plan to add new projects every month, so please contact Dagomar if you’d like us to feature your work.
