Abstract

An equation is developed, to show the magnitude of pressure change required to produce a given amplitude for a given period on the galvanometric record of the Macelwane electromagnetic microbarograph. The simultaneous occurrence of certain random oscillations recorded by the Macelwane microbarograph and various weather elements is investigated. It is found that there is a close analogy between these oscillations and atmospheric turbulence. With this analogy as a working hypothesis, a mathematical framework is developed which explains the observed relationships.
