Meterological Society Lecture
Meteorological Society Custom House lecture
Tomorrow evening (Thursday) in the Custom House in Dublin there is a fascinating public lecture by Dinah Molloy who has recently received an M.Sc. in Polar Studies through the Scott Polar Research Institute in Cambridge University.
The lecture is being hosted by The Irish Meteorological Society whose secretary is our own Evelyn Cusack and Evelyn has asked me to invite anyone interested to come along.
The name of the talk is 'Thar She Blows: A Whaler’s Fortuitous Legacy'
Dinah will tell about her research into the meteorological treasures buried in British whaling logs of the 18th and 19th centuries.
Over the last ten years she has been investigating non-instrumental, historical weather reports concealed in Arctic whaling logs within the period 1750 to 1850 and especially a group of British Arctic whaling logs between 1810 and 1820.
Dinah will discuss the use of this data in current climate research.
The talk will be held in the Custom House, Dublin on Thursday, 21 February and will commence at 6.15pm.
All are welcome and admission free but you must book at http://www.irishmetsociety.org/
