  1. if the mjinformation

    if the mjinformation if the mjinformation is to be improved in quantity, in frequency of reception, or in quality, whether this last implies a higher class of observations or increased accuracy in transmission, the cost is at once raised, as these conditions imply a more extensive use of the telegraph and longer hours of attendance in the office and at the stationThe Office receives, or would receive, were the Continental British organitelegraphic communications and that with the Shetlands perfect, wtlonreports every morning, andevery afternoon, except on Sunday The observations are taken on Sundays as on other days, but are not received at the Meteorological Office until Monday morning, when the report for Sunday is made out. The stations are situated along the entire coast of the Continent, from Christiansund, in lat., to Corunna, in lat. , with four stations on the coast of the Baltic, and one at Cape Sicie in the MediterraneaThe system is unfortunately most defective along our own Stations on the western coasts, owing to the imperfections of telegraphic com wet coast munication in those thinlypeopled and mountainous district The only stations along the line in question are Valencia, Greencastle on Lough Foyle, Ardrossan, and Stornoway. The Committee are not without hopes that they may be able to carry out the idea, proposed in their last Report, of establishing a Btation at Mullaghmore, a low lying point on the south side of Donegal Bay, not far from Sligo.The possibility of deriving benefit, as regards the probable Reports from weather of these islands, from Tory Burch Shoes constant reports from America has tAtfantic frequently been inserted in the newspapers and in scientific journals, but the experience of the Office, which for four years received daily reports free of charge from Heart's Content by the liberality of the AngloAmerican Telegraph Company, is not favourable to the idea of incurring expense for such a servic Not only was little benefit derived from such isolated and unsupported reports, but the subsequent study of the weather recorded in ship's logs has shown that atmospheric disturbances, though Tory Burch Flats they may cross the Atlantic occasionally from shore to shore, in most instances Tory Burch Outlet undergo such changes in their progress, that the fact of the severity of a storm on the coat of America is no gauge of its probable character when it arrives on our shore.
  2. expected under

    expected under expected under ordinary circumstances, owing to the differences of local conditions of exposure, &c., bo that it is impossible at first sight to say whether such discordances are simply due to telegraphic errors or to real differences in the phenomena observe Manuscript The system of the receipt of monthly sheets from the stations, report containing the copy of the observations actually taken, enables the Office to exert a considerable check on the accuracy of transmission of the reports, and care is taken that any mean results published by the Office, g., of rainfall, shall be compiled from such manuscript reports, as telegraphic reports are untrustworthy as authority for minute calculations, owing to the fact that such messages, transmitted Tory Burch Outlet in cipher, afford little internal evidence of their correctness or the contrary.In fact, inasmuch as weather telegraphy must be Tory Burch Flats carried on by means of the ordinary telegraphic staff, it is hopeless to expect such accuracy in transmission of the reports as is requisite if the data are to form the basis for precise calculations day by day. We have also the difficulty to encounter, at least at present, that as soon as a serious storm occurs the communication along the lines is very uncertain, if it be not entirely interrupted by the breakage of wireIn the face of facts such as Tory Burch Shoes these, all who have had practical experience of weather telegraphy have long since admitted that such stations are to be placed under a totally different category from those which furnish the information for climatological inquiry.We may now contrast the service of this country in regard of weather telegraphy with those at present existing elsewhere in Europe, excluding from our view the magnificent organization of the United States, whose signal service spends for its own share not far from the total expenditure of the collective governments of Europe on the same object. The cost of the signal service U.A. is upwards of ,, and this does not include any salarieWeather telegraphy depends for its success almost entirely Cost of imon the amount of money which can be devoted to it.
  3. There is yet another

    There is yet another There is yet another reason for the somewhat exceptional nature of telegraphic reports, the duty of reporting demands constant attendance and punctuality, and it therefore cannot be discharged by anyone whose avocations interfere with these requirementIn many outlying stations the choicc of observers is exceedingly limited, and it is impossible to find the same class of observers as would be looked for in establishing a station for climatological purposes; but for several of the stations, g., at the observatories of Oxford, Cambridge, and Bidston, and at Plymouth, the services of very high class observers have been secureIn fact the exceptional character of telegraphic reporting stations is recognized by every one who has ever had the slightest experience in their management.On the whole the Committee may point to the fact that their system of telegraphic observation, defective though it admittedly is, when Tory Burch Outlet compared with the strict requirements of the science, is The Committee are very glad to say that permission has at last Junebeen obtained from the proper Tory Burch Flats authorities to have the thermometers and rain gauge at North Shields transferred from the Post Office premises to Dockvray Square, which affords very good conditions of exposur Erron Tory Burch Shoes in tele allowed to be the most complete in Europe as regards the character graphic report f its observers, the control exerted over them by inspection and correspondence, the outfit of its stations, and the care taken to introduce improvements, g., in thermometric exposure whenever the possibility is offered, to ensure accuracy in the published reports, and to correct errors when detecte The lastnamed task is the most difficult of fulfilment of any, for it is only in the case of barometrical readings and to a slight extent as regards temperature, that an approach to accuracy in the publication of observations received by telegraph is attainabl In the case of the barometer the differences of reading between adjacent stations are usually so small, and follow such regular laws that a comparison of the reports reveals the existence of even slight error Serious mistakes in temperature are also detected by the same means, but as regards the other elements, especially the rainfall, and at times even the wind.
