TitleReferee's report by George Howard Darwin, on a paper 'On the distribution of strain in the Earth's crust resulting from secular cooling, with special reference to the growth of continents and the formation of mountain-chains' by Charles Davison
Date11 June 1887
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The mathematical treatment is 'inelegant'. Some of the explanation is unclear. Refers to work by Fisher [?]. The referee is considering writing a note to be published alongside the paper, which he assumes will not need to be submitted for review. Suggests shortening the mathematical section.

Subject: Mathematics, Geology
