Rocks and Rules - Putting Things in Order
Show Notes

Today we talk about the basic Principles of Geology - the basic observations that allow us to put geologic events in a relative order of when they occurred.  

The five principles are 1) Superposition, 2) Original Horizontality, 3) Cross-cutting Relationships, 4) Inclusions, and 5) Correlation/Continuity.

Armed with these five rules, you can understand a lot more about the history of the world around you!
