Meteorology in France


    WE hail with much satisfaction the movement which has just been made by the French Government in the direction of a more effective organisation than has hitherto existed for the investigation of the meteorology of France. The best results maybe expected from the step just taken, which is detailed in the printed documents quoted below,* and when we consider the great contributions made to practical meteorology by Le Verrier, the distinguished head of the Paris Observatory, in the Bulletin International, the Atlas des Mouvements Généraux de l'Atmosphère, and the Atlas des Orages originated under his direction, we may rest assured that these hopes will be fully realised.
