Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2015. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Storms: Their Nature, Classification and Laws: With the Means of Predicting Them by Their Embodiments the Clouds In presenting in the following pages the results of my investigations and studies, I fulfil a long-cherished desire, and one which has received additional strength as often as accounts have reached me of the terrible disasters at sea taking place almost daily, and which can be to a great extent avoided by knowing the true nature of storms. I am convinced that the existing theories of the nature and laws of changes of weather are intrinsically erroneous, and that at least a much nearer approximation to the truth will be found in this volume. I have not until now published the conclusions to which I had arrived principally because I found it necessary to corroborate them by other witness than my own. Twenty years ago I in vain exhausted every effort to obtain a hearing for what I believe to be the truth, and I have patiently awaited the development of the science and the formation of those investigating corps by whose observations I most hoped my views would be confirmed. When, a few years since, these institutions, for which I had labored so many years ago, became at last a realized fact, another difficulty presented itself in the method of investigation pursued; observations are made only at fixed periods of the day, which I am thoroughly convinced will never lead to definite results, since it necessitates averages, while I have aimed at a knowledge of individual phenomena by continuous observation. The consequence of the method of observation generally pursued is that an area of barometric depression is considered the storm itself, and the cause of the movement of air-currents, while I am certain that the storm is the conflict of air-currents of different temperatures, and the barometric depression the effect of their movement. And, in addition, the most important elements in the life of storms - heat, their originator, and the clouds, their embodiments - are those to which least attention has been paid. In endeavoring to reach results from tangible facts, I have been compelled to discard much of the theoretical terminology at present in use - such as the terms cyclone, anti-cyclone, dangerous semi-circle, manageable semi-circle, centre, gradient, etc. - and to substitute such as grew out of the development of the subject.
