Abstract

IN an article in NATURE of Nov. 20, p. 750, which discusses means of enabling a vessel to detect the proximity of icebergs at sea, a remark is made which indicates that the attempt to do so by means of the temperature of the water has proved unavailing. When the conditions are considered it could scarcely be otherwise. I was impressed by this during two seasons spent in investigating the currents in Belle Isle strait, in 1894 and 1906, when the matter was looked into.
