Show how successive layers of sedimentary rock and the fossils contained in them can be used to confirm the age, history, changing life forms, and geology of Earth.
All students will gain an understanding of the structure, dynamics, and geophysical systems of the earth.
Earth’s dynamic systems are made up of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere. Interactions among these spheres have resulted in ongoing changes to the system. Some of these changes can be measured on human time scale, but others occur so slowly, that they must be inferred from geological evidence.
