Abstract
During a visit on the Carnegie in August, 1911, I had occasion to look into the remarkably disturbed character of the site of the Royal Alfred Observatory at Pamplemousses, Mauritius. Mr. Claxton, while director, had already called attention to the disturbances disclosed by a painstaking and extensive series of declination observations made over an interval of several months at 893 stations, within the area surrounding the old and new sites of the absolute declination observations.1 The declination at these two sites which were located approximately in a true north-south direction and only 90 feet apart, varied from 9° 15′, at the old site, to 10° 35′, at the ne...
