Synopses & Reviews
Excerpt from The Atmosphere Its Characteristics and Dynamics Ics
Among the exceptions to the above rule Ferrel stands out prominently. This investigator, as far back as the fifties, attempted to place the science upon a dynamical basis. His work, admirable as it was, seems not to have been generally understood and often misapprehended by meteorologists. It was far from complete, as must necessarily be the case with all pioneer work. Ferrel, for instance, was not aware that a cyclone is dynamically a gyroscope.
