Caption: This model shows that while very little coal may appear at ground level, coal seams (subject to faults and dislocations) can be found below the ground. Thomas Sopwith (1803 - 1879) was an eminent geologist and civil engineer who pioneered methods of representing geological features. This set of wooden models was designed to represent geological situations with faults, folds, inclines and strata that were particularly relevant to the mining industry.
