Publisher: T. F. Unwin
ISBN/ASIN: B002WUTT44
Number of pages: 368

Description:
The application of dynamical methods by Bezold and others, the development of theories of atmospheric circulation, the improvement of instruments and the establishment of regular meteorological observatories, not only in the lowlands but also in mountain regions, these and other things have all helped in throwing light upon some of the obscurer problems of the science. The complexity of the subject, however, seems to give little hope that the ideal of deducing all weather changes from the knowledge of the variations in the amount and direction of the solar radiation, in their effect upon the mixture of air and water vapour of which our atmosphere consists, will be soon realised.
