Atmospheric See-Saw Phenomenon and the Occurrence of Typhoon Storms

Article metrics


IN January last there was a very noteworthy barometric change agreeing in a high degree with the results of those synodal pressure periods which have been affirmed for European latitudes by the statistical investigations of two German meteorologists, Captain K. Seemann and Dr. G. Meyer. These results require high pressure at the time of the first quarter and low pressure at the time of the full moon, especially in the months from September to January. Last January was also in a synodal respect marked by its elliptical character; so it agrees accurately with those requirements, the first date (January 21) nearly coinciding with a record of high pressure in northern, central, and eastern Europe, and the latter date (January 29) with a decidedly low pressure. The conditions on the following first quarter (February 20) were completely reversed, for on this date there was a remarkable record of low pressure in the above parts of the earth-atmosphere.
