Abstract

The general nature of the gales that prevail on the south
coast of Australia, Bass's Straits, and on the Coasts of Van
Diemen's Land was correctly described by Flinders forty
years ago. This description is the more valuable and trustworthy,
inasmuch as Flinders was ignorant of the modern
theory of rotatory storms.
