Pagina 766 - L'instrument était muni d'un cordon qui permettait de le retirer pour le consulter. Lorsque le thermomètre était en expérience, on bouchait l'orifice du trou avec un morceau de carton sur' lequel on appliquait une grosse pierre. La température moyenne du village de Zupia avait été fixée à 2l°,5 par de nombreuses séries d'observations' thermométriques faites en 1825, 1826 et 1829- Zupia est élevé au dessus de la mer de 1225 mètres.
Pagina 765 - On the changes of temperature which take place — at the same, and at different, times, — on the surface and at depths of three, six, and nine feet in the Canga, at Agoa Quente in Brazil The following observations were made with a view to ascertaining the rate at which solar heat penetrates the earth.

" If, in the absence of observations at midnight, and at 3 am, we assume the mean temperatures at those hours to have been 45°, which at this season cannot be wide of the truth ; we have an average of about 48°' 6 during the twentyfour hours.
Pagina 761 - Бeреги of the British Astociation, for 1864, Part II. p. 70. (Abridged) * " Numerous observations show that, whilst the conditions of the works on mines are unchanged, the temperatures at considerable depths are constant ; but it seems not to have been ascertained whether the temperature of any spot —after other openings were extended beneath it — remained the same as it had been when it was the bottom of the mine. To invite enquiry on this subject, I venture to offer the following comparisons....
