seismology, the science of earthquakes, is by no means void of interest.
It will be most convenient to treat of seismology first in order.
Witness what they have done in seismology, botany, and medicine.
Such, briefly and imperfectly sketched, is the existing state of seismology.
The investigation of earthquakes, seismology, has become in the present day an independent subject of scientific interest.
The question of the origin of earthquakes stands in constant connection with this external development of seismology.
My object, so far, has been to mark the progress of ascertained theoretic notions as to seismology.
