Referee's report by Hugh Longbourne Callendar, on a paper 'Some new observations on the static diffusion of gases and liquids and their significance in certain natural processes occurring in plants' by Horace Tabberer Brown and F Escombe

Reference number: RR/15/20

Date: June 1900

Description

Sectional committee: Physics and chemistry

Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, in full. No modifications are required and all the illustrations should be reproduced. From a purely physical point of view the paper appears unnecessarily long and elementary in view of previous work in the same field. Considering the interest of its applications, and the needs of those for whom it is written, it should be published as it stands.

[Published in Philosophical Transactions B, 1900].

Endorsed on verso as received 30 June 1900.
