LAB#4To Determine the Relative Dating Of Given Geologic SequenceOBJECTIVE: To study lithological changes of a given areaRELATED THEORY:Geological Time:The geological time scale (GTS) is a system of chronological measurement that relates stratigraphy to time, and is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships between events that have occurred throughout Earths history. The table of geologic time spans presented here agrees with the nomenclature, dates and standard color codes set forth by the International Commission on StratigraphyAbsolute Dating:Absolute dating is the process of determining an age on a specified time scale in geology. In geology, the primary methods of absolute dating involve using the radioactive decay of elements trapped in rocks or minerals, including isotope systems from very young (radiocarbon dating with 14 C) to systems such as uranium-lead dating that allow acquisition of absolute ages for some of the oldest rocks on earth.Relative Dating:Relative dating is the science of determining the relative order of past events (i.e., the age of an object in compari
