Atmospheric Electricity


IN NATURE of Mar. 5 (Suppt., p. 6), Dr. Chree gave an excellent review of my book “Die elektrische Leitfähigkeit der Atmosphäre und ihre Ursachen” (Vieweg und Sohn, Braunschweig, 1926), which will appear in English within this year. I am much pleased to see that Dr. Chree, who is an authority of world-wide reputation in atmospheric electricity, finds my book valuable and not inferior to the recent French monographs on atmospheric electricity by the late B. Chauveau and by Dr. Mathias and his co-workers.
