IFFN 0140-654X He is known for his “Canopy Theory” who, “in 1886, had come to the conclusion that the Earth had once been girdled by a doughnut-like structure of ice crystals which, in keeping with Genesis 1:6-8, he alluded to as the firmament”.[2]Dwardu Cardona, “The Reflective Canopy Model and the Mytho-historical Record”, Aeon IV:4 (Apr 1996)

Alfred de Grazia in his book, Chaos and Creation, labels Vail as a prominent catastrophist.[4]Alfred de Grazia, Chaos and Creation: An Introduction to Quantavolution in Human and Natural History (1981) Metron Publications. Page 8.
