On the Necessity For Placing Physical Meteorology on a Rational Basis *

    Abstract

    I WISH at the outset pointedly to disclaim originality in the main ideas to which I propose here to invite attention. The subject of my paper has occupied the thoughts of many men of science, with some of whom I have been in communication regarding it for several years. But though the conclusions to which I wish to lead you are the product of many minds, I am bound to accept to the fullest extent the self-imposed responsibility of bringing them forward at the present time and in the present form.
