  1. Meteorological and Geoastrophysical Abstracts 14 (1963), 3958–4019, ‘Lunar influences on atmospheric and geophysical phenomena’, by Wilhelm Nupon and Geza Thuronyi, gives 313 abstracts of date from 1825 to 1963 (but not complete for this period). It was prepared in conjunction with the IAGA/IAMAP Lunar Committee. Extensive bibliographies of such lunar tidal papers are given also by Chapman (1951) and Chapman and Westfold (1956).Google Scholar
