Atmospheric Pollution

Nature volume 101, page 214 (16 May 1918) | Download Citation



AN examination of the third report of the Advisory Committee on Atmospheric Pollution, published as a supplement to the Lancet of March 23, shows that the total deposit for 1916–17 has increased in the (six) summer, months over that of the previous year, which was greater than that of 1914–15, so that there has been a steady increase in most of the stations during the past three years. On the other hand, in the (six) winter months a diminution in 1916–17 is recorded. No very definite conclusions can be drawn from these results, as the stations have in some cases been changed; but in London, where the same stations have been in steady operation during this period, there is a distinct improvement in the winter months, and the same is true of Glasgow.
