Maritime Historians and Scientists Collaborate to Better Understand Trends in Climate Science
For hundreds of years, the captains of whaling ships kept records of wind, weather, and sea conditions in carefully maintained logbooks. Now, local scientists are poring over those records. On The Point, we discuss their efforts and what they are finding. Eve Zuckoff hosts. The guests on the program are Dr. Caroline Ummenhofer of Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, Department of Physical Oceanography, and Dr. Timothy Walker, History Professor at UMASS Dartmouth.
