TitleLetter from Thomas George Cowling, to Mr Graddon, regarding a paper 'The thermal equilibrium at the tropopause and the temperature of the lower stratosphere' by R M Goody
Date[August 1948]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics

Has looked at the paper, which contains interesting ideas, but is far too long. Thinks some of the differences of opinion might require further discussion, which would not be suitable for usual refereeing. Asks if a direct approach should be made to the author.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London']
