Abstract - Brooks Cave

McGraw, Larry H. and Hansen, Ralph C. 1956. Brooks Cave. BS Thesis. South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. 16 p.


As a topic for the thesis required for a BS degrees in Geological Engineering, Ralph C. Hanson and Larry H. McGraw have mapped a limestone cavern. This cavern was discovered by a former graduate student of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, James F. Brooks. The cave was mapped and an attempt was made to explain the processes which formed the cave. The work was performed not only for the required credit but also to gain information for James Brooks and for ourselves about the cavern. Because the cavern is a new one, other persons have evidenced interest in our work.
