Data bank task team on data rescue set up

Further details can be found here.

For anyone wondering how they can help to improve the data holdings right now, you might want to take a look at either for upper air and land surface records, or for world war 1 UK ship records. It is hoped that many of the substantial land data holdings currently available only in image / hard copy form can eventually be digitized by citizen scientists over the internet.

Second teleconference of steering committee
