TitleReferee's report by Archibald Smith, on a paper 'On the diurnal and annual inequalities of terrestrial magnetism, as deduced from observations made at the Royal Observatory, Greenwich, from 1858 to 1863; being a continuation of a communication on the diurnal inequalities from 1841 to 1857, printed in the Philosophical Transactions, 1863. With a note on the lunodiurnal and other lunar inequalities, as deduced from observations extending from 1848 to 1863' by George Biddell Airy
Date14 April 1869
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper is a continuation of an earlier one published in the Philosophical Transactions for 1863. There are stylistic differences between the two papers which make it 'troublesome' to read the two in comparison.
