The effect of the composition of the tank walls on apparent resistivity determinations made in model experiments has been investigated for the two extreme cases of an insulating and a perfectly conducting tank wall: The resulting errors have been determined both by calculation and by experiment.

Experiments are described which demonstrate that the magnitude of the effect can be considerably reduced by specially constructed tank walls.
