Review of Short Phrases and Links

    This Review contains major "Biostratigraphy"- related terms, short phrases and links grouped together in the form of Encyclopedia article.

Definitions

  1. Biostratigraphy, the use of fossils to work out the chronological order in which rocks were formed, is useful to both paleontologists and geologists. (Web site)
  2. Biostratigraphy is a key element in correlating the sequence with named units to the south.
  3. Biostratigraphy is a specialized form of Stratigraphy, which uses plant and animal fossils to establish the different layers. (Web site)
  4. Biostratigraphy is a form of paleontology that focuses on use of fossils to date rock layers.
  5. Biostratigraphy is the science of dating rocks by using the fossils contained within them. (Web site)

Rock Layers

  1. Biostratigraphy or paleontologic stratigraphy is based on fossil evidence in the rock layers. (Web site)

Sequence Stratigraphy

  1. Depositional systems; physical and biostratigraphy; geochronology and chronostratigraphy; magnetic, seismic, and sequence stratigraphy; tectonic vs. (Web site)

Strata

  1. Biostratigraphy is, as we have seen, the use of fossils for correlation and the organization of strata into units on the basis of their fossil content.

Lithostratigraphy

  1. Stratigraphy includes two related subfields: lithologic or lithostratigraphy and biologic stratigraphy or biostratigraphy. (Web site)

Basis

  1. Later, these principles of stratigraphy and biostratigraphy provided the basis upon which nineteenth century geologists established the geological column.

Dating

  1. In dating these events, detailed correlation and detailed (high-resolution) biostratigraphy is essential. (Web site)

Geologic Time

  1. The techniques and general idea of biostratigraphy was discussed earlier in the term when we talked about geologic time. (Web site)
  2. Fossils are excellent indicators of geologic time and are the basis for the science of biostratigraphy. (Web site)

Sedimentary Rocks

  1. We have specialized on selected microfossils, that are essential for accurate age determination of sedimentary rocks (biostratigraphy).

Study

  1. These layers are distinguishable as having many fossils and are important for the study of biostratigraphy. (Web site)

Systematics

  1. Systematics, paleoecology, evolution and biostratigraphy of fossil organisms. (Web site)
  2. Janssen, A.W., 2003. Notes on the systematics, morphology and biostratigraphy of fossil holoplanktonic Mollusca, 13. (Web site)

Geologists

  1. Geologists use both large fossils (called macrofossils) and microscopic fossils (called microfossils) for this process, known as biostratigraphy.

Radiometric Dating

  1. Studying time in relation to the history of the earth, using both absolute age (usually radiometric dating) and relative dating (biostratigraphy) systems. (Web site)

Paleontology

  1. Trilobites have been important in biostratigraphy, paleontology, and plate tectonics research.

Fossils

  1. The study of the sequence of occurrence of fossils in rocks, biostratigraphy, reveals the relative time order in which organisms lived.
  2. The study of the succession of fossils and its application to relative dating is known as "biostratigraphy".
  3. The fossil record and faunal succession form the basis of the science of biostratigraphy or determining the age of rocks based on the fossils they contain. (Web site)

Stratigraphy

  1. The major areas of stratigraphy include seismic, biostratigraphy, lithostratigraphy, chronostratigraphy, geochronometry, and magnetostratigraphy.
  2. Furthermore, by linking stratigraphy with paleontology, he formulated an important division of stratigraphy, known as biostratigraphy. (Web site)
  3. These observations led to correlation of strata from place to place, and to the sciences of stratigraphy and biostratigraphy.

Biostratigraphy

  1. Biostratigraphy Biostratigraphy or paleontologic stratigraphy is based on fossil evidence in the rock layers.
  2. Ammonites, graptolites, archeocyathids, and trilobites are index fossils that are widely used in biostratigraphy. (Web site)
  3. Fossils and Strata is an international series of monographs and memoirs in palaeontology and biostratigraphy, complementing the journals Lethaia and Boreas.
