The British Association: Reports


    Report of the Committee on Tidal Observations in the English Channel and the North Sea, by J. N. Shoolbred.—In the report it was stated that no official reply had been received by the Committee as to having an international datum for observations, or as to maritime governments giving facilities for detailed observations. The Committee urged the desirability of carrying out a series of observations on the Azores. The Portuguese Government had established a station for registering tides, as had also our own Government at Dover. The Committee hoped before long to have a series of observations giving most important results.
