Excerpt from book: These differences and contrasts on the one hand perpetually disturb the orderly arrangement of air densities and pressures demanded by gravity. The latter, on the other hand, as perpetually and continuously sets portions of the air in motion, in order to establish and maintain a state of equilibrium, which, however, is never attained. We must clearly recognize that the ceaseless complex changes in and motions of our atmosphere represent in fact the only state of equilibrium possible between gravity on the one hand and solar heating of the earth on the other. The disposition on the part of some to attribute important phenomena of terrestrial weather to minor solar activities is believed to be a mistake. It is in fact believed that apparent changes in solar activity, especially of the thermal character, are in reality altogether of terrestrial origin and that the imaginary correlations between terrestrial and solar activities are really the simple relations between atmospheric phenomena at one point and possibly those at another on the earth itself. It is most important that these major problems of cause-and-effect relation between solar and terrestrial activities should be observed, not only with the greatest possible accuracy but that the observational data themselves should be thoroughly analyzed and discussed, first, to establish the magnitude of the errors of the observation, and second, to determine the possible relations between solar and atmospheric effects. Seemingly the greatest need in meteorology is that of a master mind to direct itself comprehendingly and intensively to the great problems which the science still presents.
