Sizes 1 44 to 1 7 Richards Men's Furnishings AKb AINU UHIJIW gravimeter, an accurate device for measuring differences in the Dull of gravity at different places on the earth's surface. Variations in the force of gravity are caused by a number of things, including variations in he kind of rock in the planet's crust. Thus the gra-vimeter's data provide clues' to the underlying geology of the regions where the measurements are made. In the California-Alaska mountain weighting project, which should be completed bv 1970. the U.S. Geological Survey is working wilh the California Division of Mines and-Geology, the Army Map Service, and the Aeronautical Chart and Information Center of the Air Force. Gravity information is of immense interest to science for what It tells about the planet and its structure. It also Is of great practical importance. For example, variations in the force of gravity: The force of gravity is strongest at the earth's corner and diminishes with distance from it. Thus a man who weighed 200 pounds on the bulging equator would weigh 201 pounds at the slightly flattened pole ends of the planet. Also, men weigh somewhat less on the summits of high mountains than they do in the valleys below. Gravity measurements already have disclosed that great mountains, massive as they seem, actually consist of comparatively light rocks "floating" on denser underlying rock material much as an iceberg floats in water. Such measurements help to locale and identify specific rock strata beneath the surface, and so may be of immediate practical value, according to Howard W. Oliver of the Geological Survey's office at Menlo Park. Calif.' "Previous gravity measurements in Alaska, he said, "have helped outline .ind define the extent of sedimelary basins that contain oil-bearing deposits such as Cook Inlet near Anchorage."
