A New Theory of Storms and Cyclones. The Earth's Saturnian Ring




Publications abstracted:

Revue Maritime et Coloniale


Astronomy, Meteorology

    Rather than being 'only on the cover of the review of reviews that there [is] a belt round the earth', it is now suggested that 'the phenomena attending storms and cyclones can be satisfactorily explained on the assumption that, like Saturn, the earth is surrounded by rings of cosmic matter, which lie nearly on the plane of the ecliptic'.
