The circulations of matter which constitute the external processes are maintained by energy derived from the sun, whereas the internal processes derive much of their energy from the earth's internal heat, the latter being partly an inheritance, and partly an income supplied by atomic disintegration. Hypotheses relating to the physical causes of earth movements must… Expand
