Climatological Literature and Research


    PROF. R. DeC. WARD'S recent paper, entitled “The Literature of Climatology”,1 deserves to be brought to the notice of English readers. It is an attempt, in so few as eighteen pages, at a survey of the various lines along which climatological research has been carried out, and of the literature available in each branch. There are a number of branches of science—for example, biology, medicine, and engineering—in which a research worker is sometimes confronted with the need for information about the climates of different parts of the world, and the precise kind of information required varies with the nature of the research work that is being done.
