The brxnet.org weather station was referenced in a fascinating academic paper all about sea snail movements.

The paper, by Russel Noke of Bournemouth University, is titled, "What is driving the range extension of Gibbula umbilicalis (Gastropoda, Trochidae) in the eastern English Channel?"

Historic temperatures were used to establish the lowest air temperature since Jan 2012, which was -5.7°C in Feb 2012 at the time of publication.

I must admit that it is not a question that had ever previously crossed my mind, but I am really pleased that a citizen science project such as my own has enabled some furthering of scientific understanding of our environment here in the eastern English Channel.
