Using the data of surface observation, amounts of temperature change during three hours due to the horizontal advection of air are calculated for every 3 hours during one month of May 1954; and they are compared with observed local changes in temperature.
Further the daily series of the individual changes in temperature are compared with those of the heat supplied to the earth's surface. Then, it is shown that in daytime they are well correlated with each other, and that in later night the correlation is low, though in early night it is comparatively high. These circumstances are discussed in this paper.
