9781440089893: Volcanoes: Past and Present (Classic Reprint)

PREFACE. ICII IT has not been my object to present in the following pages even an approximately complete description of the volcanic and seismic phenomena of the globe; such an undertaking would involve an amount of labour which few would be bold enough to attempt; nor would it be compatible with the aims of the Contemporary Science Series. I have rather chosen to illustrate the most recent conclusions regarding the phenomena and origin of volcanic action, by the selection of examples drawn from the districts where these phenomena have been most carefully observed and recorded under the light of modern geo1ogica) science. I have also endcavoured to show, by illustrations carried back into later geological epochs, how the volcanic phenomena of the present day do not differ in kind, though they may in degrec, from those of the past history of our globe. For not only do the modes of eruption of volcanic materials in past geological tinles resemble those of the present

Description du livre Forgotten Books, United States, 2016. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Volcanoes: Past and Present The account of the first recorded eruption of Vesuvius has been graphically related by the younger Pliny in his two letters to Tacitus, to which I shall have occasion to refer further on.2 These bring down the references to volcanic phenomena amongst ancient authors to the commencement of the Christian era; from all of which we may infer that the more enlightened philosophers of antiquity had a general idea that eruptions had their origin in a central fire within the interior of the earth, that volcanic moun tains were liable to become dormant for long periods, and afterwards to break out into renewed activity, that there existed a connection between volcanic action and earthquakes, and that volcanoes are safety valves for the regions around.
