Report of the Meteorological Committee of the Royal Society for the Year ending December 31, 1873

    Abstract

    THE proceedings of the Meteorological Committee of the Royal Society for 1873 are detailed in the above Report. The discussion of the meteorology of the district of the Atlantic Doldrums, known as Square 3, has now been completed, and this piece of work, which the Committee consider may fairly be termed a monograph for the district, will shortly be published. The examination of the eight squares adjacent to Square 3 has already been entered upon. The discussion of the results of Sir J. Ross's Antarctic expedition, from the observations made on board H.M.S. Erebus and Terror in 1840–43 and H.M.S. Pagoda in 1845, has also been completed and published, and is a paper of considerable value. Another good piece of work done by the Office is the examination, at the request of the Astronomer Royal, of the observations bearing on the meteorology of Kerguelen Island for the month of December, the results of which have been forwarded to those who are now stationed there to observe the transit of Venus.
