Abstract of meteorological observations, Tasmania, for the year 1877.
Results of observations taken at New Norfolk, Hobart Town.
Includes times of leafing, flowering and fruiting of a few standard plants in the Royal Society’s Gardens during the month of July, 1877.
The Meteorology form brought into use at the beginning of 1876 differs in some respects from the former one. It has been adapted with the view of assimilating the Hobart Town records more closely with those of stations in Europe, America, etc, in order to co-operate in a system of International Meteorology.
Note.-On 16th the observatory was removed to Busby
Park, and the observations on four days, except the rainfall,
were not registered, consequently the above means are from
27 days only. As it is in the same valley the removal is not
expected to influence the results in any material degree.
