Abstract

IN NATURE of October 27 (p. 543) a short notice appears relative to some experiments of Prof. A. Piutti, of Naples, on the occlusion of helium from the air by salts in the act of solidification. Prof. Piutti apparently considers his results as throwing doubt on the figures which I have given for the age of different geological formations from the accumulation of helium in them. I wish to give my reasons for dissenting from this criticism.
