  • Age (geology) [r]: The fundamental chronostratigraphic unit. [e]
  • Biostratigraphy [r]: A domain of stratigraphy that involves the identification of fossils and their position relative to their occurrences in space and time. [e]
  • Cambrian (geology) [r]: First geologic period of Palaeozoic time stretching approximately from 550 to 480 million years BP. [e]
  • Charles Darwin [r]: (1809 – 1882) English natural scientist, most famous for proposing the theory of natural selection. [e]
  • Chronostratigraphy [r]: The branch of stratigraphy that studies the relative time relations and ages of rock bodies. [e]
  • Earth science [r]: The study of the components and processes of the planet Earth. [e]
  • Excavation [r]: The process by which an archeologist, paleoanthropologist or paleontologist uncovers material remains of the past. [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]
  • Geologic ages of earth history [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]
  • Geomorphology [r]: The study of the landforms and geological history of an area, the processes that have shaped the landscape, and the time period over which these processes occur. [e]
  • Gladysvale Cave [r]: A fossil-bearing breccia-filled cave located about 13km Northeast of the well known South African hominid-bearing sites of Sterkfontein and Swartkrans and about 45km North-Northwest of the City of Johannesburg, South Africa. [e]
  • Isotope [r]: An atom of a chemical element with a specific number of neutrons and hence a specific nuclear mass, such as carbon-14 (14C). [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]
  • Palynology [r]: The science of the study of contemporary and fossil palynomorphs as well as associated particulate organic matter (POM) in sedimentary strata. [e]
  • Rock (geology) [r]: Naturally occurring solid aggregate of one or more minerals and/or mineraloids. [e]
  • Sedimentary geology [r]: Science concerned with the physical and chemical properties of sedimentary rocks and the processes involved in their formation, including transportation, deposition, and lithification of sediments. [e]
  • Stage (geology) [r]: A unit in the study of soil layers. [e]
  • Swartkrans Cave [r]: A fossil hominin-bearinig cave situated approximately 1km to the west-northwest of the well known fossil site of Sterkfontein in the Cradle of Humankind World Heritage Site. [e]
