The Formation of Mountains

Abstract

MR. G. DARWIN has shown that, on the supposition that the earth is a cooling solid, the depth at which the maximum cooling and consequently, in all probability, the maximum contraction takes place, moves downwards, and, taking Sir W. Thomson's values of the constants, has not yet got down so far as ICO miles.
