There's a drought of crop circles across England. The British summer, not normally known for its endurance, refuses to end, and the prospect of Christmas on the beach is drawing closer with each monotonous sunny day. Petticoat Katie - Fortean investigator and shameless flirt - packs her bag and heads for the seaside with Sledgehammer Girl (and her trusty Derringer).

That sort of thing can really spoil a Bank Holiday.

INTRODUCTION The Symposium/Workshop on Solar-Terrestrial Influences on Weather and Climate was held at The Ohio State University on 24-28 July 1978. Its purpose was to provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of recent research results and ideas regarding the question whether variations in solar outputs affect terrestrial weather and cli- mate and, if so, to what extent and through what mechanisms. The Sym- posium focused on the results of previous studies and consisted of both invited and contributed papers. The Workshop, on the other hand, built upon these deliberations to develop ideas and directions for future research. Over one hundred persons from eight countries attended the Symposium/ Workshop.
