Description : This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1833 edition. Excerpt: ...destruction of the ship, however, was providentially averted. November 17.--A Correspondent at Bridgewater says: "Wednesday last we were visited by a tremendous thunder storm: the lightning struck the spire of the church, and shivered it to pieces, the windows were broken, and the tiles were forced off the houses in every quarter. At Weston Zoyland, a short distance from this, the lightning much damaged the tower of the church; the windows were broken, and the church soon filled with thick smoke, which smelt so sulphureously, that the inhabitants throughout the town were greatly alarmed; the battlements were entirely thrown down, and some of the stones thrown to a distance of sixty yards. Plymouth, November 17---It has blown a very heavy gale all last night and to-day from NW. Scilly, December 5.--On the 1st instant we experienced the most violent gale ever remembered, from SE, but it only lasted a short time. Three vessels in the Roads parted from their cables--no other accident.--(pub. Ledger.) Instance Of Extraordinary Drought. The island of Aruba, says a letter from Curacao, of November 3, is at present in a most deplorable condition, on account of the scarcity of rain. fVithin the last nine months only Jive showers have fallen; and they have been so gentle, as to have had no visible effect on the parched soil. The trees on the island are withered and no longer bear; all traces of vegetation are gradually disappearing; and the efforts to raise corn, or esculent roots, have proved fruitless. A dreadful mortality had taken place among the cattle, as the few springs from whence they had been supplied were exhausted, and there was neither fodder nor water to keep them alive. The principal inhabitants had abandoned the island. A...

Description : This book describes and analyses various aspects of Israeli climate. This work also elucidates how both man and nature adjust to various climates. The first part (Chapters 1-9) deals with the meteorological and climatological network stations, the history of climate research in Israel, analysis of the local climate by season, and a discussion of the climate variables their spatial and temporal distribution. The second part (Chapters 10-14) of this work is devoted to a survey of applied climatology. This part presents information on weather forecasting, rainfall enhancement, air quality monitoring, and various climatological aspects of planning. There is no sharp division between theoretical and applied climatology topics. Moreover, though various sections seem exclusively theoretical, they also include important applications for various real life situations (such as rainfall intensities (Section 5. 3), frost, frost damage (Section 6. 2. 4), degree-days (Section 6. 2. 5) and heat stress (Section 6. 2. 6). Professionals and university students of geography and earth science, meteorology and climatology, even high school students majoring in geography will be able to use this book as a basic reference work. Researchers in atmospheric science can also use this work as an important source of reference. Students of agriculture will also gain theoretical and practical insights. Even architects and engineers will gain another perspective in their fields.
