Paper Abstract

Preliminary results are given of the use of schlieren techniques for the analysis of dimples produced by water surface organisms such as water skaters. Since the schlieren technique is particularly sensitive to the refractive gradations of the dimple it is believed that it is more sensitive than other existing techniques for this type of study.
