    rank

    These appearances, which bewilder you, are merely electrical phenomena not uncommon--or it may be that they have their ghastly origin in the rank miasma of the tarn.

    What is the meaning of 'rank' here?
    Thanks for your support.

    Re: rank

    I was referring to thefreedictionary.com for the meaning of miasma. That webpage also gives reference from classic literature. Its source is as below.
