The Meteorological Resources of the Empire


    IN many directions steps are being taken to survey the resources of the Empire and to plan how these may best be utilised in the general reconstruction which must undoubtedly be taken in hand on the cessation of hostilities. In meteorology the same should be done, for within the Empire we may meet every type of climate. The great Overseas Dominions, India, the Colonies, and especially the oceanic islands, not only afford the means for extending our knowledge of the direction and velocity of the currents of the upper air, to meet the demands of aviation, which will become greater in the near future, but with a very moderate increase in the resources of their existing institutions, and more active co-operation, they may powerfully aid in the solution of many meteorological problems of theoretical and practical importance.
