draw sections of the and tocountry depicted upon maps,
ascertain and thickness of the ofthe various stratadepth
which it is built and their relations to the surface of
up,
the and to other.eachground
The of a correct solution of this ofimportance type
to the civil and to all othersproblem engineer, engaged
in work which involves the of needexcavations,making
not be and it is that theenlarged upon, hoped present
volume will be a to them and to teachers andhelp
students of andgeology geography.
It has been desirable to include a brief sum-thought
of the main structural features of rocks for themary
benefit of those readers who have been unable to obtain a
course of instruction in but it is notsystematic geology;
intended that this should the fuller accounts to
replace
be found in the text-books of Physical Geology.
The in the illustrations have asbeen,examples given
