Geological and Topographical Maps: their Interpretation and Use A Handbook for the Geologist and Civil Engineer

Nature volume 88, page 411 (25 January 1912) | Download Citation



THE practical problems involved in the interpretation of geological and topographical maps are here dealt with in a manner likely to appeal to students of geology and civil engineering. Having worked his way through the book, a student should be able to draw sections of the country shown upon a map, to estimate the thickness of the strata of which the area is built, and to understand the relations of the strata to the surface of the ground and to each other.
