British Rainfall, 1907

    Article metrics


    THIS excellent work, which has now reached its forty-seventh annual volume, has, by the energy and ability of its founders, established for itself a unique position among general rainfall publications. It deals with the distribution of rain in space and time over the British Isles during the year 1907, as recorded by more than 4000 voluntary observers, and is supplemented by articles upon various branches relating to that subject. As it has appeared in practically the same form for many years (which is a great advantage for the purpose of reference), there is little to be said about it that has not been previously mentioned; the work of the British Rainfall Organisation is continually expanding, and the author receives no pecuniary assistance in the onerous labour of preparation and publication of the report beyond some subscriptions from persons interested in rainfall work.

    British Rainfall, 1907.

    By Dr. H. R. Mill. Pp. 100+[280]; with maps and illustrations. (London: E. Stanford, 1908.) Price 10s.
