Página 173 - The dip-shift (Fig. 90) is the component of the shift parallel with the fault dip. The bending of the strata near the fault may be so great that the direction of the shift is no longer even nearly parallel with the fault surface; it is better, then, to use the three following components of the shift: The strike-shift denotes the horizontal component of the shift parallel with the fault strike, as already defined. The normal shift denotes the horizontal component of the shift at right angles to the...

If this be calculated in the form of gas, it will correspond at most to 0.02%, assuming that approximately 1000 liters of gas, were drawn into the tubes. Fluorine seems to be present in about twice this quantity, but in no sense can...

Página 58 - To change is always seeming fickleness. But not to change with the advance of science, is worse ; it is persistence in error ; and, therefore, notwithstanding the former adoption of what has been called the Natural History System, and the pledge to its support given by the author in supplying it with a Latin nomenclature, the whole system, its classes, orders, genera, and Latin names, have been rejected ; and even the trace...
