DateFebruary 1937
DescriptionSectional committee: Geology

Not recommended for publication. It is loosely constructed and diffuse. It is more suitable for a scientific magazine then a Royal Society publication. It contains nothing new of importance, although some of the China-focused parts are interesting. A shorter paper might be favoured by the Geological Society.
