Parent topics

Subtopics

  • Stratigraphy [r]: The interdisciplinary science field that describes all rock bodies that form the Earth's crust and the manner in which they are organised into distinctive units that are then mapped. [e]
  • Fossil [r]: A naturally preserved record of ancient life. [e]

Other related topics

  • Stage (geology) [r]: A unit in the study of soil layers. [e]
  • Age (geology) [r]: The fundamental chronostratigraphic unit. [e]
  • Geologic time scale [r]: Measurement of the geologic history of the earth which can be broadly classified into two periods: the Precambrian supereon and the Phanerozoic eon. [e]
  • Chronostratigraphy [r]: The branch of stratigraphy that studies the relative time relations and ages of rock bodies. [e]
  • Geochronology [r]: Science of determining the absolute age of rocks, fossils, and sediments, within a certain degree of uncertainty inherent within the method used. [e]
  • Geochronometry [r]: A branch of stratigraphy and of geochronology aimed at the quantitative measurement of geologic time. [e]
  • Hydrology [r]: The interdisciplinary study of the movement, characteristics and distribution of water, surface-water (fresh water and salt water), groundwater, and water-quality. [e]
  • Palynology [r]: The science of the study of contemporary and fossil palynomorphs as well as associated particulate organic matter (POM) in sedimentary strata. [e]
  • Lithostratigraphy [r]: Stratigraphy based on the interpretation of physical and petrographic properties of rocks. [e]
  • Magnetostratigraphy [r]: Studies of the magnetic characteristics of rocks. [e]
