SITE AND CLIMATE.

The site of the University of California, at Berkeley, California, comprises about two hundred and seventy acres of land, rising at first in a gentle and then in a bolder slope from a height of about two hundred feet above the sea level to one of over nine hundred feet. It thus covers a range of more than seven hundred feet in altitude, while back of it the chain of hills continues to rise a thousand feet higher. It has a superb outlook over the bay and city of San Francisco, over the neighboring plains and mountains, and the ocean. Berkeley is a town of 15,000 people. San Francisco is eleven miles distant by train and boat; fare, ten cents. Oakland may be reached by street car in twenty minutes.

Meteorological observations made at the University for the past fifteen years indicate that the summer months at Berkeley are exceptionally well suited for uninterrupted university work.

The mean temperature of the months of June, July, and August is respectively 59.3, 59.2, and 59.2 degrees. The mean maximum temperature (the average for the month of the daily maximum temperatures) is 71.1, 70.3, and 69.8 degrees; and the mean minimum temperature 52.7, 53.6, and 54.1 degrees. The average daily variation in the temperature is 18.4, 16.7, and 15. 7 degrees.

Only once during the last fifteen years—in July, 1891-did the temperature exceed 100 degrees. The average of the highest temperatures observed in each of the fifteen years was 91.3 degrees.

The prevailing mean temperature for the six weeks of the Summer Session is about 60 degrees, with 72 and 54 degrees as the extreme limits of variation for mean temperature. During the hottest part of the warmest day it is rarely that the temperature exceeds 91 degrees.

Although rain seldom falls during the summer months, excessive summer heat is practically unknown; a gentle southwest breeze from the Bay, rarely exceeding fifteen miles an hour, renders the climate agreeable and stimlating. During the summer months the days are either clear or fair, only about one day in three being foggy or cloudy.
