The investigation described in this thesis was conducted as a part time research between 1949 and 1955. Except for a year spent at the University of British Columbia, all the work was done at the University of Tasmania under, the supervision of-Professor A.L.McAulay.
In the early years much exploratory work was necessary to overcome difficulties in experimental technique which only became apparent as the work progressed and which had been the cause of much inconsistency in the results of previous investigations. The early work is described only briefly in this thesis. The major part of the thesis is devoted to the results obtained in the past three years, using methods developed as a consequence of the earlier work.
An outline of the experimental work to be described in this thesis is not given until section I.5 (page 7) of the Introduction. It was thought desirable that the work should be considered, in relation to the general problem of organisation and in the light of the achievements and difficulties of earlier investigations, and these matters are discussed first.
