Using the principles of stratigraphy, what sequence of events can be inferred from this cross-section? Start with the oldest event and work forward, referring to the various sedimentary layers and the fault by letter.

Using the principles of stratigraphy, what sequence of events can be inferred from this cross-section? Start with the oldest event and work forward, referring to the various sedimentary layers and the fault by letter. State which principle you are using to establish each interpretation. For example, “B is the oldest layer (principle of superposition), followed by….” Using the principles of stratigraphy, what sequence of events can be inferred from this cross-section? Start with the oldest event and work forward, referring to the two igneous intrusions and the surrounding country rock by letter. State which principle you are using to establish each interpretation. Now it gets a bit trickier, but just work through it step-by-step. Again using the principles of stratigraphy, what sequence of events can be inferred from this cross-section? Start with the oldest event and work forward, including all of the lettered features. State which principle you are using to establish each interpretation.
