MetadataShow full item record
This book contains an historical account of the weather in Barbados during the sixty-year period from 1901 to 1969. No attempt is made to present a scientific commentary on the weather. The descriptive account of the weather records in this book is very largely that of rainfall; but other factors, which together with rainfall determines the "weather", are also mentioned when relevant information is available. The details are taken from the writer's personal weather diaries, where available, and from the diaries of the late Ernest Murray Skeete and Elliot Lloyd Skeete in some of those years in the period when the writer was too immature or not in the Island. Additional notes have also been obtained from other sources. Mention is made at the beginning of each chapter, in the section containing the month-to-month description of the weather, of the source or soources from which the details have been obtained. Details of the Island's rainfall and of the records of atmospheric pressure, wind velocity, temperature and sunshine, taken at Codrington Agricultural Station in the parish of St. Michael, are reproduced from published reports with the permission of the Ministry of Agriculture.
