IN a review of Loomis's papers in this volume of NATURE, p. 2, occur the following sentences:—“While all, or nearly all, of the high pressure of anticyclones may be accounted for by the very low temperatures which overspread the same region at the same time along with the resulting upper currents concentrating upon them from adjoining cyclonic regions, it is quite different with the low pressures of cyclones. In the case of cyclones the problem is complicated by the strong winds, the copious precipitation, and the ascending currents, which affect the results in ways which no physicist has yet been able to explain.”
