Article metrics


To those interested in terrestrial magnetism and in Indian science, the name of Dr. Nanabhai Ardesher Framji Moos is well known, and they will learn with regret from Current Science for June of his death on March 12 last. Born in 1859, he graduated in engineering at the Poona College of Science in 1878, and after some years of teaching there entered the University of Edinburgh, taking the B.Sc. degree with distinction in 1886. On his return to India he held a series of appointments, including that of professor of physics at the Elphinstone College, Bombay.
