Example text

1. The human timescale is just one scheme for measuring time.  Geologists and paleontologists turn to the geology of the Earth for a scale to measure prehistoric time.  Rock that forms in layers from the debris of other rocks or the remains of organisms is called sedimentary rock.  The principle of superposition states that younger sedimentary rocks are deposited on top of older sedimentary rocks.  The principle of cross-cutting states that any geologic feature is younger than anything else that it cuts across.

Gravity causes rivers to flow 30 Early Life downstream and the oceans to shift with the tides. Gravity also makes objects—falling leaves, crumbling dirt, and blowing sand, for example—fall to the ground. The movement of water, especially in rivers, lakes, and oceans, causes dramatic and visible changes to the ground. A river slowly but constantly changes its course, depositing mud in some places, eroding mud away in others. The same mud that is carried away by the river may also be deposited downstream, building up layers of sand and dirt where there was little before.

Working as a mining engineer, Smith observed that the rock strata into which mine shafts had been drilled contained a regular and predictable pattern of stratigraphic rock layers. These strata could be observed in widespread locations, suggesting a regularity to geologic formations. Furthermore, certain strata contained the same fossils, no matter where an outcropping of a given layer may lay. Smith was not a man of science, but his detailed stratigraphic maps of the area surrounding Bath (1799) and all of England (1815) were the first credible geologic maps.
