Aside

Looking for something entirely different

ntlworld.com

I found or rediscovered the following site (as usual looking for something entirely different) and decided to investigate:

From the NEIC archives I took the following  (searched for minimum magnitude = 7 M.)

Obviously a winter of such proportions in Britain will come from a cycle that will still be having repercussions months afterwards and have had consequences unknown for several months prior. I have included as much earthquake data as practicable. I don’t know if it is enough. I suspect not. But as we only have charts for 21 December 1946 to 31 March 1947 it will have to do.

I have just seen the Bodendruck charts from NCAR on WetterZentrale. Bodendruck means sea level pressure (actually ground pressure) and they have the full archive from the late 19th century to 1950 and I believe I have that on DVD so I am going to have to come back to this page some time later.)

One thought on “Looking for something entirely different

  1. I have no idea how this got to be called NTLWorld.com.
    Maybe that is the name of the server of the website I got the idea from?
    I keep forgetting to insert a title on this site. There is just something about the place.
    Also the categories thing is a PITA too.

    Ah well.
