Colding on the Laws of Currents in Ordinary Conduits and in the Sea

Nature volume 5, pages 7173 | Download Citation



[I SEND to NATURE for translation the abstract (in French) appended, according to a most excellent custom, to Colding's great paper in the Copenhagen Transactions. The subject is one of especial interest at the present time, though, of course, everything written by such a man is deserving of careful attention. Those in particular who met the genial Dane at the British Association will be glad to have in a compact form his views on a question which has given rise to much discussion, and which is of very great practical importance.—P. G. TAIT]
