Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

Many fine-grained igneous rocks, basaltic and felsitic in character, are difficult to classify. In numer­ous cases, it is impossible to classify these types of rocks by quick methods of identification. It was hoped at the beginning of this study that refractive indices of glasses formed by quick artificial fusion of samples from selected suites of igneous rocks would show a close cor­relation in chemical composition.

Dispersing Agents In The Pipette Method Of Soil Analysis, Eugene W. Price

Bachelors Theses and Reports, 1928 - 1970

For many years the study of sediments has been a major problem in the field of geology. Especially is this true of the branch of sedimentology known as grain-size distribution. Throughout the years many classical experiments have been performed and procedures evolved from them, all with the purpose of a better and easier determination of the grain-size distri­bution of fine sediments, particularly the clays.
