The purpose of this paper is to secure an actual figure describing the amount of uplift in the Bighorn Mountains, the Little Rocky Mountains and the Bowdoin Dome. To the writer’s knowledge, the amount of uplift in the areas mentioned has not been determined before. Such a figure could be useful in structural studies of Montana and Wyoming, because the amount of uplift is a fair measure of the intensity of orogenic forces; also, the amount of uplift is a prerequisite to the determination of the amount of erosion.
