Explains Novel War Forci
Dr. Helmut Landsberg, of the
Mineral Industries School, who
points out that weather forecast
ing may be an appreciable'weapon
in the hands of the Germans in
their drive against England.
Dr. Helmut Landsberg, in
charge of the weather station and
the 24-hour meterological observ
atory in the School of Mineral In
dustries, believes that Germany’s
long-range weather station is now
being recognized by the British
as a vital military objective.
“If this is true,” he adds, “it is
just another sign of the strategic
importance of meterology in pres
ent-day warfare, and a further
endorsement of the effort being
made by the United States to build
up its forecasting techniques.”
As an indication of the British
policy, Dr. Landsberg pointed to
a London dispatch reporting an
RAF raid on Spa Hamburg. This
is the resort town where Dr. Franz
Baur’s famous forecasting insti
tute is located. There is no other
apparent military objective in the
Dr. Landsberg who once studied
under Dr. Baur at the University
of Frankfurt, said Baur’s fore
casts have been accurate because
he started long-range forecasts so
long ago. Dr. Baur’s station is
credited with picking favorable
weather for Hitler’s conquests.
Baur has been long-range fore
casting for ten years.
The United States is taking a
step in the right diretcion with its
attempt at five-day forecasts, be
gun a few months ago. The U. S.
Army Air orps is offering 100
scholarships for graduate training
Dr. Landsberg said weather has
always .been a mighty factor in
warfare but holds unprecedented
attention now. because of the sci
entific possibility of making weath
