Prof .. Wortmann) were recorded daily by the patients on special forms. The attacks are divided into complaints on the eyes, the nose and the bronchi. 5. The precipitation is recorded at the meteorological station in the surroundings of the city. 6. The results of an anemometer - placed near the pollen-andspore trap -are not used in this case, as they are not relevant for this investigation. 3), in which the pollen counts for night and day are give separately, we can see that there is an accumulation of pollen in the lower parts of air when there was an inversion for some hours at night; there was at this time also a greater amount of sulphur dioxide because the inversion hindered the rise of it into greater heights.

32 The Sahara Desert Recent-and-Coss-il pollen was studied by COUR and DUZER (1976) in the sebkha of Taoudenni in the Tanezrouft of northern Mali (Fig. 1). 50 m indicate the former presence of an extensive lake. The salt layers represent hyper-arid periods, while during more genial times aquifers may have replenished the basin. Surface inflow was responsible for the deposition of the clay horizons. ) gives the impression that the surroundings were always covered with a grassy savanna of Sahelian origin.
