Things are moving forward at HistoricalClimatology.com and the Climate History Network. This site now averages over 35,000 hits/year, while the network reaches a yearly audience of roughly 6,000. In March the network hosted its second annual breakfast at the American Society for Environmental History conference in Madison, Wisconsin. Shortly thereafter, the network joined the International Consortium of Environmental History Organizations, and we recently launched our Facebook page with the help of PhD candidate Eleonora Rohland.
Featured as a link in a BBC News article earlier this year, HistoricalClimatology.com now offers greatly expanded media resources, along with tools that allow you to quickly develop your own climatic reconstructions. In addition, I recently completed an interview with Jan Oosthoek of the popular and long-standing website Environmental History Resources. On the podcast we discuss topics including the definition of historical climatology, the discipline's relevance for our understanding of global warming, and the importance of the internet for today's scholars.
Look for more updates and improvements in the months to come!
