Capper (1743-1825) was a colonel in the service of the East India Company and spent considerable time in charge of fortifications on the Coromandel Coast. On his return to England, he devoted all of his time to the study of meteorology and agriculture. In this work, he concentrates on the meteorology of the coasts of India and the Arabian gulf, using information drawn from his own observations, a number of ships' logs, and earlier writings.
