Most widely held works by Athelstan Spilhaus
Meteorological instruments by W. E. Knowles Middleton( )

32 editions published between 1941 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 995 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since its first appearance in 1941, this book has remained, through various editions and reprintings, the standard, indeed the only modern work in English in its field. This third edition, completely reset, includes descriptions of the newer devices which have come into use in upper-atmosphere sounding, electronic techniques for wind finding, thunderstorm location, and through the renewed interest in meterorological observations from aircraft. A number of new illustrations have been added. The authors have followed the pattern of the earlier editions in presenting examples found in regular weather service. Some attention has been given, however, to new techniques which, though not widely in use at the present time, show such promise as to deserve the studen'ts attention. A general treatment of the application of radar, radio direction finders, and radiosoundes to meteorology has been included. Of the previous edition the bulletin of the American Meteorological Society said: "This is the first general textbook on the subject in English for more than half a century ... While the book is indispensable for reference for the practising meterorologist, the needs of the student are met by an adequate presentation of theoretical topics."

Observations of light scattering in sea water by Athelstan Spilhaus( Book )

7 editions published in 1965 in English and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Combination of theoretical curves of the volume scattering function for several different monodisperse systems of Mie scatterers shows that in a polydisperse system the total scattering coefficient is determined by the scattering at small angles to the direction of the incident beam. These combined curves also show that as the particle sizes increase the rise in the volume scattering function at small angles increases. Using a laser as the light source, forward scattering measurements were made to obtain relative total scattering. A continuous track was made between Woods Hole and Port Lewis, Mauritius. In the proximity of land twofold fluctuations of the scattering in a range approximately three times higher than the nearly constant values found in mid-Atlantic were observed. Some fluctuations of the open sea values in the Atlantic were associated with thermal changes
