Running The Numbers: Your Role In Weather/Climate Historical Data by Austen Onek
With the advent of the internet, the collection and dispersion of data being able to be used and studied from PhD's down to the everyday Citizen Scientists, the ability to examine different times and the weather and/or climate experienced back then is on the increase with multiple sites available for catalogue/search. I will present several sources of historical weather and climate data, as well as websites of organizations where you can participate in the translation/transcription of that data from days gone by.
I am originally from Topeka, KS and graduated from The University of Kansas in 1991 with a degree in atmospheric science & physics. Taking a break from TV for a bit, I was a public information / video specialist at Shelby County Health Department for the COVID-19 pandemic. I have also worked at WREG-TV in Memphis, Fort Smith/Fayetteville’s KFSM-5 and my hometown station KTKA-49 before arriving here. While in Memphis I also worked part-time at the City of Memphis Pink Palace Museum & Planetarium on the Educational Department staff as their scientific advisor, instructing several school classes on various topics.
I’ve been an amateur radio operator since February of 2000. My FCC callsign is KG4GKE. I am an Eagle Scout and enjoy many things besides weather, including chess, cooking, reading, astronomy, cryptogram puzzles, graphic art design, web comics, photography and a lot of other stuff.
