1850 - 1950
Exploration, Scientific Research
The US logbooks on Old Weather were photographed as part of a NOAA / National Archives joint imaging project from Record Groups 23, 24, and 26. The logbooks are from United States Ships and Stations 1801-1946, US Revenue Cutter, and US Coast Guard Vessels 1820-1941, as well as US Coast and Geodetic Survey Vessels from the late 19th century. Preservation and conservation work for materials being imaged is done by National Archives staff with a focus on preserving the records in their original format. This project is supported by the North Pacific Research Board (NPRB), the NOAA Arctic Research Program, and by in-kind and volunteer contributions from many others. Selected vessels already available on microfilm were digitized by the NOAA Climate Data Modernization Program (CDMP) through a grant to the Office of National Marine Sanctuaries.
