Referee's report by Richard Strachey, on a paper 'Tables of temperatures of the sea at different depths beneath the surface, reduced and collated from the various observations made between the years 1749 and 1868, discussed. With map and sections' by Joseph Prestwich

Date: 17 June 1874

Description

Recommended for publication in the Proceedings. It is 'an elaborate and very careful review of all that has been done in the matter of deep sea temperature observations'. It is 'rather long', but the referee doesn't feel justified suggesting it should be condensed.
