Not illustrated. 1908 edition. Excerpt: ...than Dunseverick the differences in height, which enter into the computation, have of course been altered. Tables VIII and IX contain the results arrived at; but the details of the outer zones have been given more concisely than was done in the case of Dunseverick. Table VIII. Orographical Correction at Ifussooree (Camel's Back). Height 6924 feet. Computation using new estimation of heights). Table IX. Orographical Correction at Mussooree (Camel's Back). Height 6924 feet. (Computation using new estimation of heights). It l'as already been shewn on p. 57 that for the irregularities beyond the 35-mile radius an allowance of 0-0028 may be made; my estimations of height therefore yield a total orographical correction of 0-0228 + 0-0028 = 0-0256 Basevi's result was 0-0262, so that the agreement is better than could have been expected. For the Camel-s Back Station the reduction to sea level is as follows: --9 24 = + 0-619 li-' a =-0,243 Orographical correction within 35-mile radius + 0-023 M beyond 35-mile 4-0-003 Total + 0-432 Recomputation using Baseui's heights. The method which Col. Herschel devised for reducing the labour of the computation was not the same as that which I have adopted and I have considered it worth while to recompute the orographical correction for Mussooree (Camel-s Back), using Captain Basevi's heights and my method. The results are given in Tables X and XI. Table X. Orographkal Correction at Mussooree (Camels Back). Height 6924 feet. (Recomputation using Basevi's heights). Table XI. Orographical Correction at Mussooree (Camels Bach). (Recomputation using BasevPs heights.) The method of grouping blocks in order of height has heen used up to a radius of 5 318 miles; beyond this, formula (2) has been employed, more
