Relative dating of geological strata
These techniques were first articulated by Nicolas Steno, a Dane living in the Medici court of Italy in the 17th C.
- The principle of superposition is simply the fact that the lowest layer of a rock formation is the oldest layer while the youngest layer is towards the top. Think of it as a boundary layer between igneous rocks and sedimentary rocks.Citations in this bibliography and index include all the publications made by the Society from 1967 to 1993 — full papers from the as well as abstracts of papers presented in the seminars, conferences and symposiums organised by the Society.

Geologists observe the geologic layers and try to reconstruct the sequence of events.
