Plate 9. Map of the Basin of the Isle of Wight, shewing the hollow occasioned by a depression in the chalk within which some of the more recent strata appear to have been deposited; and also a part of the district in which the chalk is found wanting, where the strata below the chalk are exposed, p. 168 and 170.
