Abstract

As some of your readers may be misled by Mr. Croll's reiterated and uncontradicted assertions, that he has demonstrated the fallacy of the doctrine of Oceanic Circulation advocated by me, I think it right that they should be made aware that these assertions receive no support from the physicists and engineers, who must be much better judges than either Mr. Croll or I can be, as to the value of the data on which his computations are based. His arithmetic may be perfectly correct; but if his fundamental assumptions are wrong, or inapplicable to the case, his demonstration utterly fails.
