Food For Thought: Assessing Historic Climate Conditions with Timothy Walker and Caroline Ummenhofer

Join Professor Timothy Walker and Caroline Ummenhofer as they explain how historic changes in weather patterns and the earth’s climate can be evaluated using weather data contained in Nantucket whaling voyage logbooks. Their research assesses historic weather patterns in the Atlantic and Indian Oceans using an unexploited cache of archival documentation from the NHA archives.


The Nantucket Historical Association preserves and interprets the history of Nantucket through its programs, collections, and properties, in order to promote the island’s significance and foster an appreciation among all audiences.
