Winds and Weather on the Coasts of India

Nature volume 130, page 481 (24 September 1932) | Download Citation



MR. S. BASU, of the Marine Section of the India Meteorological Department, Poona, has prepared a useful handbook on the winds and weather off the Indian coasts.* It is based, presumably, largely upon the logs of steamers of the merchant service voyaging in Indian waters, as well as on the work of meteorologists—notably Sir John Eliot—who have made a special study of the cyclones of this region, and is intended to be of service to Indian seamen. Assuming that the standard of accuracy to be expected of a professional meteorologist with extensive sources of trustworthy information has been maintained, this book should fulfil admirably the purpose for which it was written.
