Eskdalemuir Observatory1

Nature volume 81, page 86 (15 July 1909) | Download Citation



WE have received the annual report of the observatory department of the National Physical Laboratory for the year 1908, which is noteworthy as being the first report issued since the establishment of the new magnetic and meteorological observatory at Eskdalemuir. Readers of NATURE will be aware that the advent of electric tramways to the neighbourhood of the observatory at Kew has greatly interfered with magnetic work there. The new establishment in Dumfriesshire is far removed from all industrial undertakings, and will thus be free from disturbing effects due to artificial causes.
