Scientists Collect Much Valuable
Material For North Atlantic
Meteorological Survey
DATA TO BE PUBLISHED
In spite of a boat] disaster which
occured to the members of last
summer's University Greenland ex-
pedition on the way back from the
Mt. Evans station, the expedition
was successful in obtaining addi-
tional data which, together with
the data obtained from the two
previous expeditions, proves the
practical worth of the work which
has been done, and insures the
practicality of continuing the ex-
peditions in the future, according
to Prof. William Herbert Hobbs of
the geology department, and head
of the expedition.
Essentially the work of the Mt.
Evans station is that of a weather
station, to predict the weather for
the surrounding area and to record
accurately and continually, the
temperature, pressure, and wind
velocities. This data is collected by1
means of special instruments}
loaned to the station by the Uni-
ted States weather bureau.
The special scientific aim of the
expeditions-is to' collect high wind
velocities and wind directions over
a period of time in order to de-
termine the effect of the inland
ice upon atmosphere and weather
conditions in the general region of
Greenland and the North Atlantic.
The last expedition was especially
successful in this phase of the
work, several extremely lofty bal-
loon flights having been made by
William Carlson, assistant aerolo-
gist who made his first trip to
Greenland last summer, and
Leonard R. Shneider, aerologist.
Professor Hobbs, director of the
expeditions since their inception'
in 1926, expects to publish soon
some of the data which has already
been collected. His anticyclone
theory of the Greenland ice-capI
which explains the wind system
of Greenland has already been, ac-
cepted by leading geologists. The
controversy now regards extent of
the,\influence of the ice-cap winds.
Professor Hobbs believes that its
extent is considerable. The accu-
rate and consecutive records which
have been collected and which are
now being collected, will go a long

that region.
The plans for next summer are
not yet matured, but it is hoped
that the equipment will be in-
creased to include a small amphi-
bian plane equipped with meterol-
ogical instruments, to be used for
short flights over the ice-cap. It
is also hoped that the station will
be provided with its own motor
launch.
