A special climate survey which we launched at the start of spring has received tens of thousands of results.

The Open Air Laboratories (OPAL) climate survey, launched in March, was completed by more than 16,000 people. The survey looks at ways in which we affect the climate and how the climate may affect us.

Since the start of the survey the country has experienced a record-breaking dry spring which was also the joint warmest on record, with weather varying from March frosts to April heat.

One area of the survey investigates perceptions of warmth, cold and clothing by participants. Almost 1,800 results have been recorded so far, providing valuable information on how our own response to weather changes throughout a season.>> More
