Excerpt

If this work is deemed to have merit it will be because for exactly a third of a century the author has had the privilege of access to what is probably the most complete meteorological library in the world, and of being a student of several of the able men who have constituted the scientific staff of the U. S. Weather Bureau, and because of his familiarity with the researches of Redfield, Espy, and Ferrel, and the works of Angot, Hann, Davis, and Waldo. He has consulted with and received valuable aid from Prof. Cleveland Abbe in the preparation of the matter on Precipitation, Clouds, and Colors of the Sky; Prof. Frank H. Bigelow on the Circulation of the Atmosphere; Prof. Herbert H. Kimball on Thermometry and on Winds; Prof. Alfred J. Henry and Librarian C. Fitzhugh Talman on Climate; Prof. Henry J. Cox on Frost; and Prof. W. J. Humphreys on many technical points in the physics of the book.

Special effort has been made to have the theory of meteorology lead up to the art of weather forecasting.
