The Richey-Lambert Coal Field, Richland and Dawson Counties, Montana

Description: From abstract: The Richey-Lambert coal field is an area of about 900 square miles in Richland and Dawson Counties, eastern Montana, along the divide between the Missouri and Yellowstone Rivers. In this region only flat-lying continental rocks occur near the surface. About 300 feet of the Lebo shale member and about 930 feet of the coal-bearing Tongue River member of the Fort Union formation, of Eocene age, are exposed in the area. Deposits of terrace gravel at two levels in the field are tentatively correlated with the gravel on the Cypress Hills, Saskatchewan, which has been assigned to the Oligocene by the Canada Geological Survey, and with the Flaxville gravel, of upper Miocene or Pliocene age.

It is an irregularly bounded tract lying south of the Yellowstone River in eastern Rosebud County and western Custer County and measures 50 miles from east to west and 28 miles from north to south. It adjoins the Forsyth coal field, on the west, the Ashland coal field, on the south, and the Miles City coal field, in part, on the north.

Mineral industry of Alaska in 1934

Description: From Introduction: "The value of its mineral resources has long been recognized as a matter of concern in the welfare of every nation, and all wise governments almost from time immemorial have taken steps to find out about, utilize, and safeguard such of these natural resources as lie within their own boundaries or to acquire rights in those they need that lie outside those boundaries. Obviously one of these lines concerns itself with the record of present performance-how much of the different mineral commodities is the country at present producing, where does this production come from and what are the facts as to the current developments in the industry? To answer some of these questions authoritatively is part of the work of the Alaskan branch of the Geological Survey, and answers to those questions for the year 1934 are given in the accompanying report."

Geomorphology of the North Flank of the Uinta Mountains

Description: From introduction: The geologic record of the Tertiary period in the Green River Basin of southwestern Wyoming consists, in a broad way, of two quite different parts. The history of the first part, lasting through the Eocene epoch and perhaps on into the early Oligocene, was recorded in a thick series of sedimentary rocks of fluviatile and lacustrine origin. The history of the second part was recorded chiefly by successive stages of stream planation and stream trenching, but also in part by fluviatile sedimentation and, in certain localities, by glacial deposits. The first part of the record is virtually continuous, though its interpretation is by no means simple and obvious. The second part of the record is distinctly fragmentary, and the evidence the fragments provide is difficult to evaluate and to integrate.

The Flora of the New Albany Shale: Part 1. Diichnia Kentuckiensis, a New Representative of the Calamopityeae

Description: Abstract: A new genus of the Cycadofilicales, Diichnia, is described from the New Albany shale, of late Devonian age, in central Kentucky. The one known species, which is based on stem material showing internal structure, belongs in the family Calamopityeae. Foundation for the generic segregation is seen in the double leaf truce of the genotype, D. kentuckiensis, in contrast with the originally single trace in other known representatives of the family.

Geology of the Coastal Plain of South Carolina

Description: From abstract: The Coastal Plain of South Carolina extends from the Atlantic Ocean inland a distance ranging from 120 to 150 miles to the Fall Line, where it adjoins the Piedmont province. It includes an area of more than 20,000 square miles, or nearly two-thirds of the State, whose total area is 30,981 square miles, of which 494 square miles is water. The geographic divisions of the Coastal Plain are the marine coastal terraces, or "low country", which stand less than 270 feet above sea level, and the Aiken Plateau, the High Hills of Santee, the Richland red hills, and the Congaree sand hills.

Sponge-Iron Experiments at Mococo

Description: From Forward: "This bulletin covers one phase of the program of the Metallurgical Division of the Bureau of Mines on the direct production of iron from its ores. Another phase of this program has been covered in Bulletin 391, Microscopic Structure and Concentratability of the Important Iron Ores of the United States, by S. R. B. Cooke. Methods of iron-core concentration will be discussed in future bulletins."

Contributions to the Data on Theoretical Metallurgy: [Part] 5. Heats of Fusion of Inorganic Substances

Description: From Introduction: "Examples of the use of the derived heat-of-fusion values in the application of thermodynamics to problems concerning metallurgical practice are not given here, but the reader is referred to the textbook of Lewis and Randall (454), in which the methods and types of calculations are adequately portrayed, and to the papers of Maier (469, 470, 471), in which the application of thermodynamic methods to various problems of metallurgical interest has been illustrated and discussed."

Contributions to the Data on Theoretical Metallurgy: [Part] 6. A Revision of the Entropies of Inorganic Substances--1935

Description: From Introduction: "Moreover, a critical study of the existing vapor-pressure data made by the author (98) furnishes entropy of vaporization results suitable for obtaining approximate values of the entropies of a number of gases from the entropies of the solids or liquids. Consequently, it appears worth while at the present time to supplement the former publication, giving the new values now obtainable and making such revision in the older values as the data warrant."

The stress criterion of a tension member with graded flexural stiffness : contribution to the problem of "clamping effect" outside of the elastic range

Description: The approximate size of the stress criterion of a bar on two supports stressed beyond the elastic range is assessed by an approximation. The calculation proceeds from the premise of "substitute flexural stiffness" so defined that the part stressed beyond the elastic range may be considered as following Hooke's law when determining the flexural deformation quantities. For the determination of the substitute flexural stiffness, it is presumed that the material is already stressed so much beyond the yield point as to be strain-hardened. The data are directly applicable to materials having no definite yield point. For the rest, von Karman's method for compressed and subsequently deflected bars serves as basis for the calculation.
