Die meteorologischen Elemente und ihre Beobachtung, mit Ausblicken auf Witterungskunde und Klimalehre

    Abstract

    THIS very useful text-book, intended for higher schools and for self-instruction, forms part vi., vol. ii., of the collection of scientific treatises published by O. Schineil and W. B. Schmidt. It explains the physical Jaws necessary for clearly understanding meteorological processes and apparatus, and contains valuable footnotes, together with the derivation of all technical terms employed in the text. Many points, such as the difference between periodical and non-periodical oscillations of meteorological elements, “variability” of temperature, the use of the cloud-mirror, &c., which are frequently puzzling to observers, and are generally only dealt with in treatises of greater pretensions, are made quite clear by means of examples. We recommend the perusal of the work to any meteorological students who are acquainted with the German language.

    Die meteorologischen Elemente und ihre Beobachtung, mit Ausblicken auf Witterungskunde und Klimalehre.

    By Otto Meissner. p. vi + 94; with 33 illustrations. (Leipzig u. Berln: B. G. Teubner.)
