Abstract

DR. C. G. S. SANDBERG, of the Institute of Applied Geology at Munich, is well known from his geological work in South Africa, and his advocacy of the Kainozoic age of some Alpine granites. He is deeply impressed by the parallelism of folds in the crust belonging to very distant dates, and though this fact has been regarded as supporting the origin of mountains by the slow contraction of the earth, he advances a theory of mountain formation which rejects emphatically that contraction. He attributes the major earth movements to the action of isostasy, under the control of the internal heat. He considers that deep-seated thermal influences may prevent the movements that would be expected if isostatic equilibrium were due to simple changes at the surface.
