Abstract

IF Mr. Laughton will take the trouble, to read my previous Reports with attention, he will find that I have based no argument upon my “trough” experiment, which I have used merely as an illustration. The argument in favour of the vertical Oceanic Circulation which I advocate rests upon the facts of Deep Sea Temperature. In my forthcoming Report, these facts (including many which have not been hitherto published) are discussed, in connection with the Temperatures of Inland Seas; and if Mr. Laughton will frame a better hypothesis for the explanation of them sthan that of the Thermal Circulation first advanced by Pouillet, and latterly accepted by Herschel and Sir William Thomson, I will gladly accept it.
