    Article metrics


    AN exhibition is being arranged by the Royal Meteorological Society, to be held in the Geophysical Gallery of the Science Museum, South Kensington, by permission of the director, Sir Henry Lyons. The exhibits will include modern types of observing instruments approved by the Meteorological Office, such as the latest type of thermometer screen with steel stand, equipped with sheath thermometers; the sunshine recorder Mark II, with adjustments for level and azimuth; a new form of mountain rain-gauge which has been named the ‘octapent’ mountain rain-gauge; and a stream-lined wind-vane which embodies a number of new features—these are being lent by the director. Several stands of instruments of special interest will be shown by some of the leading British makers, among which will be a model anemometer, a new form of automatic pollution gauge, and examples of ‘distant--reading’ thermometers. A number of historic instruments will be shown, and another exhibit will illustrate the development of lightning conductors.
