TitleLetter from Humphrey Lloyd, on a paper 'On the simultaneous distribution of heat throughout superficial parts of the earth' by Henry Hennessy to George Gabriel Stokes
Date19 November 1862
DescriptionApologises for not having time to read the paper at present. Is familiar with the work however, as an abstract was presented by the author at the last meeting of the British Association. Refers to work by L W Meech [?] 'On the relative intensity of heat and light of the sun upon different latitudes of the earth' in the Smithsonian Contributions to Knowledge, Vol.9 1857, which covers a very similar subject.

Subject: Meteorology, Physics and Chemistry

[Published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London, 1863]
