Data Rescue of the Long-Term Daily Maximum and Minimum Air Temperature Records in Ireland
11th January 6.30 PM - 8.00 PM (refreshments from 6.00 PM)
Carla Mateus is a PhD researcher at National University of Ireland Galway (NUIG). Her PhD project aims include data rescue, digitisation, quality control and homogenisation of long-term instrumental daily maximum and minimum air temperature records since the beginning of the meteorological observations (back to the early and mid-19th century) in Ireland. The homogenised daily air temperature series will be used to assess past extreme air temperature events in Ireland. This talk will focus on: the importance of data rescue, the rescued air temperature series and the double entry of the rescued records. This project is a collaboration between NUIG and Met Éireann.
Carla is looking for candidates to complete the double entry into Excel of the research data from old manuscripts. Please contact us if you are interested or speak to us on the evening of the talk.
