The weather is still written on notepads


Knowing the climate and meteorology of tens, hundreds and thousands of years allows us to anticipate possible events such as glaciations, hurricanes, thaw, etc. According to a study by theRovira i Virgili University(URV), only 20 percent of climate data is in digital format, which complicates its study and anticipation of future meteorological events.


“If we had all the historical data recorded, we could more reliably assess how often these phenomena may occur in the future.” Explains Manola Brunet, researcher at the Center for Climate Change at the URV. And, according to an analysis carried out by this scientist, 80 percent of the world’s climate data is not digitized.

This problem is more serious in some parts of the world than in others. In continents such as South America or Africa, the situation is even worse, according to the Climate Research study, which highlights the need to recover the information recorded on perishable media such as notebooks or notebooks.

The situation in Spain

However, the situation in our country is not so serious. As explained by SINC, as in some first world countries such as Canada, Holland, Norway and the United States, in Spain partial access to historical climate data is allowed. Other states, however, despite being developed countries and having sufficient means, do not follow the recommendations of the World Meteorological Organization , from which they are urged to share them.

According to the researcher, ” not deciphering the messages contained in the climatic records of the past will entail socio-economic damages , since we will be unable to face the current and future impacts associated with climate change”.
