A map is added, on the polarisation of the atmosphere—almost a new science—with an explanatory article by Sir David Brewster.
From time to time during the ascent I examined the polarisation of the sky.
The dense cloud, looked at perpendicularly to its axis, showed scarcely any signs of polarisation.
Some important notes on the polarisation of the clouds were made.
The idea that non-polarisable electrodes are meant to get rid of polarisation is not thus justified by the facts of the case.
By accidentally combining two rhombs in different positions, Huygens discovered the polarisation of light.
It is exceedingly interesting to observe both the perfection and the decay of this polarisation.
Even the uncondensed electric light falling on the floating matter showed, though faintly, the effects of polarisation.
His scientific investigations and discoveries embraced the subjects of heat, light, polarisation, and specially glaciers.
Any particles, if small enough, will produce both the colour and the polarisation of the sky.
