Abstract

THE fall of temperature that may occur in the higher strata of the atmosphere during an eclipse is somewhat doubtful, but can scarcely exceed half a degree. An attempt was made to measure it directly during the partial, but nearly total, eclipse in England on April 17, 1912, but of the instruments sent up one only was recovered, so that no comparison could be made.
