Abstract

The photographs which I have to show you are to illustrate some remarkably clear examples of very recent changes in elevation of the earth's crust. Most of the pictures were taken in the neighborhood of Sudak, in the Crimea. The southern coast of this peninsula is very rugged. It rises abruptly out of the water to a height of 3,000 to 5,000 feet. The waves are constantly eating back so that in many places the coast land is almost a sheer precipice hundreds of feet high.
