In recent discussions conducted by national groups of the geological profession as to the adequateness of today's training of students of geology, much has been said about the importance of a more-than-passing acquaintance with the fundamental sciences. Only of late have the geological faculties of universities come to realize in full measure the significance of a thorough knowledge of physics, chemistry, and mathematics on the undergraduate level as a background for the beginning student in geology. That training in these disciplines is absolutely essential to the student planning to enter the fields of geophysics or seismology has of course been recognized for a long time.
