Predicting Droughts and Floods--Edwin L. Moseley's Essays on Long-Range Weather Forecasts - With Stuckey's Commentaries and Rainfall Predictions
is a compilation of most of the known written contributions of Edwin Lincoln Moseley's investigations in meteorology from 1903 until his death in 1948. His concentrated effort in this discipline was developed over the last 13 years of his life beginning in 1935, one year before his retirement from active teaching. During this time, Moseley was (1) making detailed studies of tree-ring widths obtained from logs and stumps of trees, (2) recording water levels of Lake Erie and the other Great Lakes, (3) collecting accounts of the floods along the Ohio River, and (4) compiling the amounts of rainfall at various locations, especially in Ohio, but also throughout the mid-western United States. From these data he derived rainfall cycles and made long-range weather forecasts. Moseley developed the theory that the amount of rainfall in most areas of the interior of the North American continent repeats itself in cycles of 90.4 years, or four times the period of the magnetic sunspot cycle. In this endeavor, Moseley became widely known in the popular press for his successful weather forecasts.
