Abstract: After a gap in the scientific information regarding the amount of annual rainfall in Malta was discovered in the 1830s, Dr G.C. Grech Delicata took it upon himself to amend this omission. Mitchell writes about Grech Delicata’s findings and provides a background of the Maltese islands at the time.
