Nature volume 113, page 672 (10 May 1924) | Download Citation



IN a foreword to this monograph on “Clouds and Smokes,” Sir Oliver Lodge directs attention to this “rather out-of-the-way subject, which, nevertheless, is of considerable practical importance.” The reviewer would emphasise not only the vital importance of the subject, but also the commendation given of the way in which Dr. Gibbs has carried out his task. Few people have given to the question of dust in air the attention it deserves, and it may be well to recall the pioneer work carried out by Dr. John Aitken and by Sir Oliver Lodge himself.
