Abstract

Meteorological records recorded at the Observatory, Hobart Town. Includes leafing, flowering, and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society's Gardens during the month of March, 1872. The most marked phenomena in the weather this month were the high but tolerably steady atmospheric pressure; the warm mean, but very variable daily-range, of temperature; great elastic force of vapour; heavy rain-fall; small aerial movement; cloudy skies; pure air; and unusually defective electricity indications. The death rate total was above the average, but principally in children under one year old, and persons above 60 years old.
