Crystalline rock is different from sedimentary and volcanic rock primarily because layering and differential erosion of layers play a less prominent role in landscape development.
Layering in rocks creates a certain amount of predictability in both the geology and the landscape of an area that may not be present in crystalline rock.
Despite his belief, Brooks still felt the railroad could aid watercraft by operating as part of an intermodal network.
This led to the New Albany & Salem Rail Road's (NA&S) organization in the spring of 1847 (made official by Indiana Governor James Whitcomb on July 31st as a recognized corporation) to connect New Albany with Salem.
Brooks quickly jumped on this incredible opportunity, realizing it would enable him to carry out his waterway-railroad concept.
By the summer of 1848 initial funding was in place and after just three years of work the line to Salem was completed on January 14, 1851.This chapter discusses landscape development in the crystalline Appalachians, Northern Rockies, North Cascades, and Superior Upland.The Appalachians are considered an ancient mountain belt, but present-day topography may be less than 15 million years old.New England forms the glaciated northern continuation of the Blue Ridge and Piedmont provinces.The North Cascades have undergone recent uplift in a wet climate, resulting in some of the steepest and most rugged terrain in the United States.A decade later promoters attempted to access eastern Kentucky's rich coalfields but alas a coup foiled the plan.
