Excerpt from Results of Meteorological Observations in the Five Years 1916-1920, Made at the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford, Vol. 52
This volume contains the results of the meteorological observations made at the Radcliffe Observatory, Oxford, during the five years, 1916 to 19... 20 inclusive.
In its main features it is arranged on the same lines as Volume LI of the same series, which contains the meteorological results for the five years 1911-1915, but differs from the latter in the omission of the discussion of the readings of the underground platinum resistance thermometers. Since the year 1911 the publishing of the observations has been kept up to date by printing the principal results annually, and for the convenience of meteorologists who might desire to make immediate use of them a limited number of the separate annual parts, in paper covers, were issued as early as possible in the year following that to which each part related.
In this volume these five annual parts have been bound together, composing the first 100 pages, and all the results for a particular year will be found in the part relating to that year.
In consequence of the largely increased volume of astronomical work carried on at this Observatory in recent years, especially in connexion with the investigation of stellar parallax and proper motion now in hand, it was found impossible with the limited staff to continue systematically the measurement of the photographic records of barometric pressure and air temperature, as was done for the six years, 1900 - 1905, the results of which appeared in Volume XLIX. The photographic results, therefore, do not appear in this volume, but the records continue for the present to be taken as hitherto and are available for reference at any time.
