- The later expedition of the " Pola " discovered the " Rhodes Deep " (36° 5' N., 28° 36' E.), with a maximum depth of 2110 fathoms: this deep is closed to the south-east by a ridge running south-east, over which the depth is 1050 fathoms. Off the coast of Syria the " Pola "obtained four soundings of more than 1100 fathoms, and between Cyprus and the coast of Asia Minor only two over 550 fathoms. Murray gives the following figures for the areas and volumes of the Mediterranean at different depths: which gives a mean depth over all of 768 fathoms. The following table is due to Karstens: Kriimmel gives the total volume of the basin as 4,249,020 cubic
**kilometres**or 1,019,400 cubic statute miles, and the mean depth as 782 fathoms. (See Ocean.) Meteorology. - This corresponds to 8.3
**kilometres**of air at standard pressure. - Or again if we inquire what, according to (21), would be the transmission through 8.3
**kilometres**, we find 1 - o 044 =o 956. - The following are some of his figures, the velocity v beings in
**kilometres**per hour: For velocities from o to 24 km. - At barometric pressures such as exist between 18 and 36
**kilometres**above the ground the mobility of the ions varies inversely as the pressure, whilst the coefficient of recombination a varies approximately as the pressure.
