TitleReferee's report by Lewis Fry Richardson, on a paper 'Eddy diffusion of water vapour and heat near the ground' by Frank Pasquill
Date22 January 1949
DescriptionSectional committee: Mathematics

Recommended for publication in Proceedings. The description is long but he doesn't see how it can be shortened. The instrumental outfit was impressive although there was a 'regrettable gap' in it. Some terms used should be defined. The investigation of Taylor should be referenced in the paper.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society A, 1949].
