ACRE, the Atmospheric Circulation Reconstructions over the Earth, is an international, multi-partner initiative that collects and digitizes terrestrial and marine weather observations to create data products used worldwide, often in reconstructions (reanalyses). This presentation will provide an overview of the data rescue efforts now underway, “data sparse” regions of the world and how libraries might support the rescue of this historical data.
