Meteorological Observations in the Arctic Seas (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Meteorological Observations in the Arctic Seas Dear sir: The records of the meteorological observations made under the direction of Dr. Kane, in the second expedition to the Arctic regions, were placed in my hands by his late lamented father, Judge Kane, in December last. Dr. Kane had selected Assistant Charles A. Schott, of the Coast Survey, for the reduction of a considerable portion of the observations made in that expedi tion; and I, therefore, -placed these in Mr. Schott's possession for reduction and discussion. The work has been faithfully performed, and I recommend it for publication in the Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge. It is proper to state that the instruments were furnished in part by the Smithsonian Institution, and that the computations have been made at its expense.
