TitleReferee's report by William Hopkins, on a paper 'On the simultaneous distribution of heat throughout superficial parts of the earth' by Henry Hennessy
Date10 November 1862
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Does not consider the results to have much bearing on terrestrial physics. Conclusions are 'vague and indeterminate'. Suggests the paper may be more suited to a 'more popular scientific journal', such as the Edinburgh Philosophical Journal. An abstract may be published in the Proceedings.

Subject: Meteorology, Physics and Chemistry
