Geology of India & Burma, 6e

$65.00

(1) THE need for a treatise on the geology of Burma has been felt for many years, not only by those interested particularly in that country, but also by geologists who study the earth’s crust on broad structural lines, by palæobotanists and palæozoologists who trace the natural history of flora and fauna throughout geological ages on world-wide evidence, and by petrologists who correlate information from different petrographic provinces to enable them to establish generalisations of great importance with respect to the story of the rocks. The need has been greater in the case of Burma than almost any other portion of the globe, because that country is situated to the south and west of one of the most extensive parts of the earth’s surface about which least is known geologically. Tibet, Mongolia and Siberia to the north, and Siam and China to the east, have never been surveyed by geologists, with the result that for many thousands of square miles in that part of the world, geological knowledge is scanty in the extreme and, unfortunately, likely to remain so for some generations. It thus becomes of the greatest importance to place on record the available geological data about the only part of this vast land-mass where geologists have for some years been at work.
