Abstract

The inspiration for this paper was due to Professor W. M. Davis, who, in an article published in the Journal of School Geography, Vol. 4, No. 7, discussed the "Illustration of Tides and Waves". This led me to think that here in an inland town where there is no opportunity for the student to observe tidal effects, there is a need for class illustration that I, at least, had been neglecting. I consequently drew a plan of what it seemed to me would meet the need and employed a local tinner to construct the apparatus. The piece proves very satisfactory and seems quite desirable not only to illustrate tidal waves in bays of various shapes, but also deposition of sediment under various conditions and the formation of ripples on sediment.
