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. SOME OF THE CHIEF
