The combination of color schlieren with high speed flash techniques has proved to be a valuable tool for investigating high speed transient events. Fully two dimensional refractive index information can be ob- tained. The resolution on 35 mm film was sharp enough to allow 50 cm by 75 cm color enlargements. REFERENCES 1.

I notice that in two of his pic- tures density gradients in directions at right angles are shown by the same colour transitions. MY' J Kim Vandiver: The photographs presented were not composed to yield accurate determination of the direction of density gradients.
