Date17 January 1924
DescriptionDiscusses the difficult questions raised by [David] Brunt's paper ['The dynamics of cyclones and anticyclones regarded as atmospheric vortices'], but agrees that the final word on whether to publish a paper should rest with the Sectional Committee and not one individual referee. Agrees with Professor [Geoffrey Ingram] Taylor that he dislikes 'long controversies' like this.
