The Ocean of Air - Meteorology for Beginners by Agnes Giberne (1845 - 1939).
This is an immensely readable book explaining anything to do with air - the atmosphere, wind and clouds, and life. This 1896 explanation has since been overtaken by more specific scientific discoveries, but the general concepts certainly still hold true until today. Any beginner interested in meteorology will find this book a great place to start. ( Carolin)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): https://catalog.hathitrust.org/Record/008631131
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

      Prospective Prooflisteners: Please read the Listeners Wanted FAQ before listening! Level of prooflistening requested: standard

      Need noise-cleaning?

      Save files as
      128 kbps MP3

Hi Carolin,

This project looks like fun, and if you're ready, I'd like to claim chapter 2: What would the world be without air? I'd like to confirm that our source text can only be viewed via the HathiTrust viewer, yes?

Great, thank you!

You can view the text by clicking on "full view". I think you can also download it but it didnt work for me on the tablet just now. Thank you!

Yes, the full view opens the HathiTrust viewer (via babel). A partner login is required to download it (a university login account). That's kind of a bummer because there's no way to mark up the text without downloading it. Oh well.

Carolin,

How is the author's last name pronounced? Is it a soft or hard "G"?

Oh good question thanks for asking! I couldnt find a definite pronunciation for this particular name but if Ms Giberne followed the normal pronunciation rules this will be a soft g, "Jiberne" as it were. Ill add a note to the first post. Thank you!
