Abstract

I SUPPOSE it will be expected of me that I should answer the two objections raised by Captain Wharton (May 22, p. 81), viz. (1) that he knows of no steep submarine reef-slopes exceeding 4000 feet in height; and (2) that the lagoons could not be so shallow as they are if we assumed any extensive positive shifting of the coast-line.
