This thesis is primarily concerned with investigations of
ionizing radiation in the atmosphere using balloon borne instruments.
A programme of cosmic ray flights from Hobart was begun in
1959 under the direction of Dr. A.G.Fenton of the University Physics
Department. I participated in the design, development, construction
and successful flight of single geiger counter balloon sondes in partial
fulfilment of the requirements for the degree of Bachelor of Science
with honours which I received in 1960.
