The stones collect, and I remember the place I took them in, and who was with me that day, so it is also great memories. There is something so beautiful and comforting, too, about the individual particles, from which a never-ending journey. The Mediterranean is special, so Greece is definitely on my list of places I visit when I go next time somewhere..

  • The Wheeler Formation was previously dated to about 507 million years old, so we know that the trilobite is also about 507 million years old.
  • I’ve only seen your part of the world on the TV and it looks fantastic with all the formations, but it must be so much more beautiful in reality.
  • The fastening and compression are both lithification processes that turn sediments into sedimentary rock.
  • We are so used to the rocks in the area where we grew up and we don’t know how much it means to us, until we see back to you again.
  • By measuring the ratio of the height of the original (parent) isotope to the amount of the (daughter) Isotope, it breaks in a age can be determined.
  • But the rocks are also projection in any other way, such as by dissolution, oxidation and hydrolysis that occurs in the water.

Less energy is required to transport of small particles such as clay and sand, so we know that fine sand can be transported by wind and smaller currents, and it needs a very quiet environment for sound, and the Deposit.

Thanks for reading and for taking the time to leave such a nice comment, I appreciate it, Best wishes Tina. By the time the rock is broken down into small particles to be transported by weathering and the small particles. Gypsum and halite are not as soluble, and evaporates first, and later potassium and magnesium salt. Sometimes it can be difficult to say the exact name of the rock, but I love you anyway and it gives me something to ask me later. By comparing the relative proportion of uranium-235 and lead-207, the age of the igneous rock can be determined. To determine a fossil, the age, igneous layers (volcanic rock) beneath the fossil (the fossil fuels) and above (for a time after the dinosaurs existence) be dated, resulting in a time-range for the dinosaurs life. My goal with this hub was to my fascination with nature and rocks, in particular, and from your comment I know that I have done exactly that.

Thanks Tina, I will now know a bit more about what’s what with the sediment layers in fossil dating and the like. You must have inspired so many kids during her time as a teacher, and an inspiring teacher can make all the difference later on in life!I am glad to meet again one who is fascinated by rocks: -) It’s a fantastic area is to be interested and there is so much more to learn. This is very interesting, and by thinking about them we can determine where a sedimentary rock was created. But there are also limestones, which, on an inorganic origin and are composed of calcite, formed by chemical changes or high water temperatures. However, my life between Sweden and Greece share, I have the happiness to enjoy the nature of Greece. Carbon-14, the radioactive isotope of carbon used in carbon Dating has a half-life of 5730 years, so it decays too fast. I like rocks, your theme, sediment, and Yes, if you are dull, and their formation is different from the other kind of rocks, but still they have their own beauty and prosperity.

The difficult part is to stop writing before the hub gets way too long:) thanks for reading and your comments are always welcome by me, Tina.. I’m glad to know you found this hub interesting, it is great to share knowledge, in an area that I love. I can’t believe I forgot that was the Sandstone sedimentary rock of the garden of the gods in Colorado Springs, where I grew up, the sand stone and it has helped me to remember this in your center. The compaction reduces the pore space between the particles and. This can often be complicated by the fact that geological forces cause folding and tilting of the stones. in this way, granular particles, in more or less solid rocks turn fine It would me more hubs to explain in detail the methods and how it is done, and maybe I’ll extend this hub later with dating methods. Although not a fossil in the weathering part recalls how the Sphinx has all but proven to be much, and thought much older than ever before. I think it is not very usual, that we really see the things that are familiar and have always been in our environment
