The CSO and Met Éireann are collaborating on a new climate data rescue project which involves the CSO keying daily data recorded by Met Éireann Meteorological Officers. There are around 40 variables to be keyed for each station month covering characteristics such as: air and grass temperatures; air pressure; humidity; wind force and direction; cloud formation; rainfall; and sunshine hours. The first station to be rescued is the Phoenix Park which has daily data in manuscript form from the mid-nineteenth century to 1959. As of mid-August, data for 1898-1925 and 1931-1959 have been computerised but not yet fully checked.
