Abstract

To those of you who are especially interested in the mechanics of mountain building, and particularly to those of you who are teaching the subject of geology I wish to present a few facts concerning some very remarkable expressions of Alpine structures which with diagrammatic clearness are displayed on this side of the Atlantic. For fan-structures, closely appressed flexures, and overturned folds it is customary to turn to distant Switzerland which cannot usually be visited by the student until long after he has left college. The locality to which I have reference is in the region of Jasper Park, in the northwest part of Alberta. Until recently this district was one of the most inaccessible spots on all the North American continent.
