The main focus of tambora.org is Historical Climatology. Years of meticulous work in this field in research groups around the world have resulted in large data collections on climatic parameters such as temperature, precipitation, storms, floods, etc. with different regional, temporal and thematic foci.
tambora.org enables researchers to collaboratively interpret the information derived from historical sources. It provides a database for original text quotations together with bibliographic references and the extracted places, dates and coded climate and environmental information.
The system allows for the integration and sustainable storage of existing data collections, as well as the entry of new data. tambora.org already contains two large data collections (HISKLID and parts of Weikinn) and several smaller data collections.
