TAKEN BY STORM
BY THE BELGIANS
Santa Clara Authority Re
views Results Determined
by Sounding Balloons in
the Upper Regions
By Father JEROME RICARD, S. J.
The Belgians have taken the at
mosphere by storm. Quite recently
they have conducted a series of experi
ments with a view to ascertaining, not
exactly the navigable portion of the
air. but its variations of temperature
and pressure. Their program included
100 flights with sounding balloons, fur
nished with thermometers and baro
graphs. Fifteen of these flights at
tained a height of more than 82,000 feet,
over 18 miles, and once they reached
the phenomenal height of 106.370 feet— ;
more than 20 miles. The last height j
made was more than four miles.
These searchings into the upper at
mosphere brought out the surprising
result that, after all, the condition
affirmed by the old meteorology was
> orrect. namely, that as you go up Into
the air the temperature does, indeed,
decrease up to a certain level, which
is variable from season to season, and
fven from day to day, but then it un
rgoes a reversion, which continues
to the biggest altitudes so far
reached by human experiment. The
depth of atmosphere comprehended be
tween where the temperature begins
to rise and a yet unknown somewhere
on the way up to the outer envelope is
called the "reversing layer.''
MIGHT NEED SUMMER ATTIRE
May it not be surmised, in this con
nection, that the aeronaut might Anally
get so near the confines of the atmos
phere as to have to use the tiniest sort
of summer attire? If air was too ten
uous to support his frail craft, ether,
without losing its transparency or
elasticity, might follow the rule of
inverse proportion and support it.
After considerable academic wran
gling and due verification of instru
ments and calculations, the following
achievements were given out: The
lowest level of temperature reversion
was reached November 3. 1910, at
22,599.2 feet, more than four miles,
during a cyclonic condition; and the
highest, August 2, 1906, at 45.132.8 feet,
more than eight miles, on the boundary
between a cyclone and an anti-cyclone
of feeble gradient. The lowest regis
tered temperature was 164.3 degrees
Fahrenheit below freezing point, Feb
ruary 3, 1911, at an altitude of 34,079.2
feet, more than six miles, at the level
of- the reversion layer for that day.
The usual happening with almost
every observation was that no sooner
you got fairly on the other side of the
region of minimum temperature, say
164.3 degrees Fahrenheit below freez
ing point, the cold began to decrease.
Thus it was.
degrees, Fahrenheit, at 8&.& M feet, over
149 degrees, Fahrenheit., at 4.">.rr_:ti feet, over
145.4 d*zrees, Fahrenheit. :*t «",2,:?20 feet, r>ver
GREAT DIFFEREXCE XOTED
This occurred on February 2, 1911,
and whatever one may think of the
inversion it is certain that on that
, occasion there was a difference of 164.3
srrees Fahrenheit between nea» the
surface of the ground and the high
regions of air.
Once more, August 12. 1910, the tem
perature near ground being 57.2
degrees Fahrenheit. the following
figures were obtained:
182.96 decrees, Fahrenheit, at 40.".44 feet,
OTer seven miles.
146.4 degrees, Fahrenheit, at 4l\<i4!t feet,
over eight miles.
140 degrees, Fahrenheit, at 40.200 feet, over
133.7 degrees, Fahrenheit, at 54,770 feet,
over 10 mile*.
Here, again, appears another case of
inversion. Note well that the above
temperatures start from the freezing
point downward, not from the 0 of the
Up to the reversing level the general
rate of temperature decrease is 33.26
degrees Fahrenheit to every 328 feet
Ordinarily, however, this rate of de
crease begins only at a certain height
comprehended between 3,280 feet and
13,120 feet. Below that level the de
crease is not only slower, but it is
sometimes replaced by an increase.
Thus, for instance, it is much warmer
200 feet vertically above San Francisco
than in the city Itself.
THREE SUPERPOSED LAYERS
In view of the above mentioned find
ings it will be fitting to distinguish in
the atmosphere, so far as it has come
under observation, three superposed
1. One at the top where the de
crease in temperature becomes nil
or even negative.
2. Another next below where the
decrease proceeds at the rate of
33.26 degrees Fahrenheit per 328
3. A third of varying depth at
the bottom, which is the field of
atmospheric troubles, the scene of
the joys and sorrows of our
weather bureaus, where cloudy
masses are formed, pouring down
rain oV dropping snow. Part of
this disturbed region, where the
cumulus and the startus disport
themselves, stops at about 13,120
feet (over two miles) up In the
air. Below Is the nimbus or rain
cloud. Farther up reigns the
cirrus, a cloud of wispy icicles, in
a region 32.800 feet (over six
The general circulation of the atmos
phere takes place entirely wKhin the
middle zone Immediately below the re
versing layer. Higher up Is a region of
perpetual serenity, where no clouds
dare enter. The middle zone is, there
fore, the most Important. It may be
stated finally that at a height of about
3.1 miles air pressure reduces to one
half of what It Is generally at or near
the surface of the ground. Below that
level one-half the entire mass of the
atmosphere is diffused round about the
The above remarks show most dis
tinctly that howsoever universal solar
radiation may be. it is particularized
by the nature of the recipient.
Of course, the final object of atmos
pheric soundings is, no doubt, an im
provement in the methods of forecast
ing. Much has also been done in this
country along the same line of experi
mentation. It remains, however, very
doubtful if substantial results of a
practical nature will be the outcome
In regard to the short forecast, and »?tlll
more so In regard to the long one. The
latter evidence must depend on extra
terrestrial and extra atmospheric
causes far beyond the reach of the
sounding balloon A very successful
appeal has been made to planetary po
sitions, solar rotat'on causing the vari
ous high pressuret to recur every 25
days, spotted are«s marking four
cyclones each in 27 days, plus alia. On
the latter foundation used at the ob
servatory of the University of Santa
Clara, long range forecasts were issued
for December, 1912, as follows:
Stormy periods— December 1 to
4 (storms thaa occurred during this
period were gloriously verified),
December 7 to 11, December 14 to
17, December 20 to 23 and December
27 to 30.
A scarcity of rain Is announced for
these parts and farther down south.
The above storms will especially benefit
the northwest and northern California
Crom San Francisco upward.

San Francisco is far behind other cities
in the development of these privileges,
the Transportation Federation of Im

passed resolution strongly indorsing
the proposed charter amendment No.

street railway difficulties in the city.
The figures complied by the Pacific

More effective than calomel, castor oil or salts; gently
