Abstract

The importance of a practical knowledge of the law of
great storms has induced me to draw up a brief exposition
of their most striking phenomena. In bringing this subject
under the notice of the Royal Society of Van Diemen's Land,
I am not without a hope of securing the co-operation of its
members in the desirable attempt to develop the law of the
progressive motion of the storms of the Pacific Ocean, and
of those of high southern latitudes.
