Practical Exercises in Elementary Meteorology
by Robert DeCourcy Ward
Publisher: Ginn & company 1899
Number of pages: 222
The object of this book is to supply a guide in the elementary observational and inductive studies in meteorology. This Manual is not intended to replace the text-books, but is designed to prepare the way for their more intelligent use. Simple preliminary exercises in the taking of meteorological observations, and in the study of the daily weather maps, as herein suggested, will lay a good foundation on which later studies may be built up.
