Record #200653:

Hudson's Bay Company ships' logbooks: a source of far North Atlantic weather data / Catharine Ward, Dennis Wheeler.

Title: Hudson's Bay Company ships' logbooks: a source of far North Atlantic weather data / Catharine Ward, Dennis Wheeler.
Author(s): Ward, Catharine.
Wheeler, Dennis.
Date: 2012.
In: Polar Record. (2012.), Vol. 48(245) (2012)
Abstract: Reviews weather data contained in logbooks kept by Hudson's Bay Company (HBC) ships on their regular annual voyages between UK and Hudson Bay from 1760 to 1780. Data has been shown to be reliable and of unique character for period and place. Argues that logbooks, taken collectively, provide matchless, substantial and uniformly reliable source of oceanic weather information for far North Atlantic for "pre-instrumental" period (i.e. before 1850).
