Title: Some Dip Problems

Author(s): D. Jerome Fisher (2)


After brief remarks on the history of the solution of dip problems, there is described a simplified chart for the determination of the components of gentle dips. There follows a short discussion of the slope scale and the "minimum scale-error graph." The latter is a slope scale carrying an extra series of figures showing the percentages that must be added to scaled distances between points of different altitudes on large-scale contour maps to give minimum actual distances. Lastly are recounted two of Harker's examples one of which in particular, the problem of two tilts, is thought to merit more attention than it has received.
