Abstract

A British Meteorologist Brunt has overlooked some of the implications of the Discusse s His Work in BBC density-channel experiments made by Sandstrom, and Broadcast by some of the disciples of Rossby and Prandtl, but it Prof. David Brunt, well-known on must be admitted, at least, we are a long way from this side of the Atlantic for his excel- practical results. Brunt took up the theme of analo- lent textbooks and many original pa- gous cause and effect relations in the atmosphere. He pers in the Quarterly Journal of the stated that the meteorologist is willing to believe that Royal Meteorological Society, re- the same causes will always produce the same effect, cently gave a brief popular radio talk from London, but not that like causes necessarily produce like ef- in which he attempted to explain why meteorologists fects. A very small difference in the initial stage may who have devoted half a life-time or more to the study lead to enormous differences in the next stage. Expe- of the weather can't always say with certainty what rience shows that while situations represented by simi- tomorrow may bring. The speaker revealed consider- lar weather charts do sometimes develop
