Adjective

(*not comparable*)

- Well-worn pebbles of amorphous quartz (agate, chalcedony, jasper, &c.) are found in the
**stratified**drift along the western side of the Tertiary region of the state, and from Columbus northward. - Ignoring temperature effect, and taking the density as a function of the pressure, surfaces of equal pressure are also of equal density, and the fluid is
**stratified**by surfaces orthogonal to the lines of force; n ap, dy, P d z, or X, Y, Z (4) are the partial differential coefficients of some function P, =fdplp, of x, y, z; so that X, Y, Z must be the partial differential coefficients of a potential -V, such that the force in any direction is the downward gradient of V; and then dP dV (5) ax + Tr=0, or P+V =constant, in which P may be called the hydrostatic head and V the head of potential. - The rocks here concerned are the extension of the same
**stratified**Palaeozoic formations already described as occurring~in the Appalachian region and around the Great Lakes. - The
**stratified**rocks of the Great Plains, the Parks, and the Plateaus contain enormous quantities of coal. - The Hexapoda, being aerial, terrestrial and fresh-water animals, are but occasionally preserved in
**stratified**rocks, and our knowledge of extinct members of the class is therefore fragmentary, while the description, as insects, of various obscure fossils, which are perhaps not even Arthropods, has not tended to the advancement of this branch of zoology.
