In 1826 he took his degree of Doctor of Philosophy, his thesis on the occasion being an inquiry regarding barometric changes; arid it is further significant of his future life work that his first published memoir was a paper on certain meteorological inquiries relative to winds, these two subjects holding a first place in the great problem of weather-changes.
