... the mean amplitude of diurnal variations at Paris is from April to September 13' to 15'; for the other months from 8' to 10'. On some days it amounts to 25' and sometimes is no more than 5'. The amplitude of diurnal variations decreases from the poles to the equator. Irregular variations accompany earthquakes, the aurora borealis and volcanic eruptions.
