FIGURE 10.13 Stratification (layering) in sedimentary rocks along the Book Cliffs, Utah.

What are some characteristics that differ among the various strata seen in this photograph?

To determine

 Some characteristics that differ among the various strata seen in this photograph.

Explanation

“Principle of original horizontality states that all the sediments deposited are originally horizontal in nature, unless they are deformed by external crustal disturbances which affect once all the layers are deposited.”

“Principle of superposition states that each bed in an undeformed sequence of sedimentary strata is older than the one above and younger than the one below.”
