TitleReferee's report by William Chandler Roberts-Austen, on a paper 'An investigation of the spectra of flames resulting from operations in the open hearth and 'basic' bessemer processes' by Walter Noel Hartley and Hugh Ramage
DateDecember 1900
DescriptionSectional committee: Physics and chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions in full but is 'hardly sufficiently familiar' with the detail of spectroscopic work to suggest modifications, if any are needed. No illustrations were sent to him except the one in the text. It is an excellent work with the results of much interest in connection with two processes of great industrial importance.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions A, 1901].
