First Edition in English of Die elektrische Leitfähigkeit der Atmosphäre und ihre Ursachen. xviii, 204 pp; 15 figs. Original cloth. Very Good. "When it was decided in January, 1927, to prepare an English edition of the present work, the German edition had already been published some six months. On account of the extraordinarily rapid progress which had been made in certain branches of atmospheric electricity, it was necessary to rewrite two chapters completely: that on ultra-gamma radiation (höhenstrahlung) (§23), and that on the properties and ionisation of the highest layers of the atmosphere (§28). . I hope that the book may prove of interest to English readers, as it is the only general treatise on Atmospheric Ionisation which has so far appeared in the English language" (Author s Preface, p. vii). For Hess s discovery of cosmic radiation, see D. S. B. 6: 354-6. Victor Hess: Nobel Prize, Physics, 1936, (shared with Carl Anderson), "for his discovery of cosmic radiation.".
