Overview

Excerpt from The Eruption of Vesuvius in 1872

The general term, Vulcanicity, properly comprehends all that we see or know of actions taking place upon and modifying the surface of our globe, which are referable not to forces of origin above the surface, and acting superficially, but to causes that have been or are in operation beneath it. It embraces all that Humboldt has somewhat vaguely called the reactions of the interior of a planet upon its exterior.

These reactions show themselves principally and mainly in the marking out and configuration of the great continents and ocean beds, in the forcing up of mountain chains, and in the varied phenomena con sequent thereon, as seen in more or less adjacent formations.
