Harmattan

A prevailing wind on the coast of Africa, betweencape Verd and Cape Lopez, during the months of December, January, and February. (See Philosophical Transactions, vol. lxxi). It demands a place in this work, on account of its singular dryness, and its effects on the human body. The wind passes over the burning deserts of Africa, and is so dry that it rapidly absorbs moisture, and in a very short time the leaves and all the more tender plants are parched like hay. The skin becomes dry and chapped, the nose and lips sore, the fauces arid, and the sweat from the parts defended from its influence is highly acrid. Yet it is generally accounted healthy; though Dr. Lind gives it a different character, who calls it a fatal wind, perhaps confounding it with a simoon.
