We transcribed daily positions, temperature, pressure and wind observations from the logbooks of ships in the service of the English East-India Company (EEIC) in the years 1798-1834. The logs were in the collection of the British Library and the observations collected are being used to increase understanding of global climate variability and change.

The logbooks used were limited to those containing thermometer and barometer observations: About 10% of the total collection of EEIC logbooks in the BL, covering only the later years of the EEIC.
