Thirty-Eighth Report (Third Series) of the
Committee on the Climate of Devon

Trans. Devon Assoc., vol. 52, (1920), pp. 135-151.


R. Hansford Worth (Ed.)

Prepared by Michael Steer

The report was read at the Association’s July 21st, 1920 Totnes meeting. The Committee reported that the weather for 1919 was no exception to the general rule that Devon’s climate mainly consists of extremes, and that nothing is more unusual than an approach to what is mathematically considered the normal, maintained over any considerable period. This report extract provides (a) names of the Climate Committee members, (b) a comprehensive list of the Stations at which readings were taken, and (c) the names of the observers. The report extract is from a copy of a rare and much sought-after journal that can be downloaded from the Internet Archive. Google has sponsored the digitisation of books from several libraries. These books, on which copyright has expired, are available for free educational and research use, both as individual books and as full collections to aid researchers.
Committee Purpose: To collect and tabulate trustworthy and comparable observations on the climate of Devon.
