TitleDetailed referee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'Investigations on platinum thermometry at Kew Observatory' by Charles Chree
Datend [1900]
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. The results are of little value, as the apparatus contained errors greater than the measurements they were taking. Better observations may have been made if the experiments had been more carefully planned. Refers to work of Charles Thomas Heycock, Francis Henry Neville and Ernest Howard Griffiths. Discusses the apparatus and the location used, and the methods utilised. Considers the discussion of the results to be too long.
