Finding weather information

I am working hard to find weather records from logbooks for the National Science Challenge, Deep South project.

I am looking for: Lighthouses in New Zealand, Supply ships to Antarctica from the 1950s onward, catch books from fishery and whaling and sealing logbooks from the 1850s on, and Coast-watch logbooks. However, it seems nothing is around from these sort of sources here in New Zealand. I already started the search in archives and museums here in NZ, but nothing did show up so far.

If someone reads this and has an idea where I could look further, please, let me know and contact me under: ursula.rack@canterbury.ac.nz

One thought on “Finding weather information

  1. You may want to contact the whaling museum in New Bedford, MA or the maritime museum in Mystic, CT both in the USA. There are several other maritime museums in the US, but those two I would think most likely to have ships’ logbooks with relevant observations.
