AMONG recent publications of the Swedish Meteorological and Hydrographical Office are the detailed observations from the observatory at Riksgransen on Vassijaure in Swedish Lapland for the year 1931 (Arsbok, 13, 1931). Full records are given for every hour on each day of the year, with additional notes on the freezing of the lake, aurora borealis and other matters. Another publication (Arsbok, 15, 1933) records the rainfall of Sweden. Monthly figures are given for each station with summaries for various districts and comparisons with the mean average figures. There are also rainfall maps for each month and for the year. It is noticeable that the year under review showed nearly everywhere in Sweden a considerable deficiency compared with the normal rainfall. A third publication treats of the weather of 1933 (Arsbok, 15, 1933) in a series of monthly surveys with comparisons with the means.
