Página 9 - Humidity, Relative: The ratio of the actual partial pressure of the water vapor in a space to the saturation pressure of pure water at the same temperature.
Página 34 - Shift of the Wind. — The average direction of the wind changes slightly during the day, both over plains and on mountain tops, the tendency being for it always to follow the sun, or, rather, the most heated section of the earth. That is, the wind tends to be east during the forenoon, south (in the northern hemisphere) during the early afternoon, and west during the late afternoon and early evening. This does not mean that at each instant the wind really blows directly from the then warmest region,...

Página 12 - Dew is water condensed onto objects near the ground whose temperatures have fallen below the dew point of the adjacent air due to radiational cooling during the night, but are still above freezing (ref.
