|Description||Hill aims 'to determine, if possible, what constituent of the atmosphere has the greatest absorptive power, by means of the actinometric observations so carefully made at Mussooree [Mussoorie] and Dehra [Dehrandun, India] by Messrs J B N Hennessey, F R S, and W H Cole, M A, in conjunction with the records of meteorological observations made at the same or neighbouring places in the same months of the year.'|
