What generalization can you make about ages of rocks that are close to the mid-Atlantic?
Rocks of Ages - 1919 was released on: USA: 2 November 1919 Read More
How are the laws of superposition and crosscutting relationships used to determine the relative ages of rocks?
They are used to determine the relative ages of rocks by stating that younger rocks lie above older rocks, and that rocks that cut through a layer are younger than the existing layer. Read More
The oldest continental plate rocks will always be older than the oldest sedimentary deposits. Read More
The discovery of metals occurred in prehistoric times; therefore, no one knows the answer to this question, except as a generalization in geological ages. Read More
Igneous rocks are of various ages, from billions of years to minutes in age. Read More
Would fossils of species that did not change noticeably over time be useful in determining the relative ages of rocks?
In order to be useful in determining the relative ages of rocks, an indicator must provide different indications for rocks of different ages, right? So how could something which doesn't change over time be useful? Read More
the ages of the rocks become increasingly older in samples obtained farther from the ridge and the younger had just come out the ridge. Read More

The ages of the rocks become older the farther the way they are from the ridges. The closer they are the younger it is. This leaves evidence to the seafloor spreading theory. Read More

The principal that the fault or body of rocks is younger than any other body of rocks that it cuts through. Read More
At the oceanic ridges the age of igneous basalt rocks is approximately zero (as that is where they formed) and the rocks get older the farther away. The ages of sedimentary and metamorphic rocks does not correlate reliably with distance from the oceanic ridges like the ages of igneous rocks, because they can form anywhere not mainly at oceanic ridges. Igneous granite rocks are generally formed around continental volcanos not oceanic ridges. Read More

What are the guidelines used to determine the relative ages of the rocks and events shown by a geologic cross-section?
The guidelines used to determine the relative ages of the rocks and events shown by a geologic cross-section is the Law of Superposition. It is the basic law of geochronology. Read More
What refers to the investigative process by which geologists identify and match sedimentary strata and other rocks of the same ages in different areas?
Stratigraphy. Read More

it is determined by studying the relative and absolute ages of rocks and fossils Read More
Ages, compositions, origins, stratifications, fossil containing layers. Read More
it was okay was not better than now CHURCH ROCKS :-) Read More
No. The middle ages ended about or close to 1400. Elizabeth I was queen in 1533, so she was after and at the start of the Renaissance Read More
Why have sedimentary rocks been very important to scientist who study how living things have changed over the ages?
Because those are the type of rocks that contain the most fossils Read More
What are the guidelines used to determine the relative ages of the rocks and events shown by a geologic cross section?
The Principle of Cross-Cutting Relationships is a good guideline to know the estimated age of rocks and events. This states that the formation of rocks that cuts across rocks must be younger than the rocks that they cut across. Read More
The pre-teen years are from ages 10-12. Pre means before so it's the close ages before the teens. Read More
The principle of superposition is used to compare the ages of rocks, typically used by geologists. Read More
This is known as radiometric dating. Read More
The limitations are that it only dates the ages of rocks. Read More
Carbon- 14 test Read More
The Tundra is a geo-climatic region, not a geological region. Therefore all types and ages of rocks are found across the resign of the arctic Tundra. Read More
That depends on the rock. Some sedimentary rocks are used as construction material, or as raw material for different kinds of industries. Older sedimentary rocks have a scientific value as well, as ages of fossils can be determined by studying them. Read More
Paleontologists use fossils to determine the relative ages of rocks. Due to evolution the fossil assemblage in rocks changes over time and the different assemblages can therfore be used to place the rocks in which an assemblage is found in its place in the evolutionary sequence. Read More
Yes, a rock ages at a rate of 1 year per year. ANOTHER ANSWER: Rocks don't GROW. Rocks are not 'living beings'. Rocks are not born from seeds or from 'birth'. Only 'living things' age. Rocks GET old; just like your car GETS old. It deteriorates. Rocks WEAR-AWAY when exposed to the elements. Read More
THey were pretty close to the same but they were not exactly. They were like that but what about the farm houses and stuff they were no all the is right they were close Read More
The physical weathering agents are basically the water and wind. But the rocks decay mostly because of wind. Wind blows continuously for ages and the rocks that stand in the way get decayed in the long run. Read More
Sedimentary rocks are not the only way to determine relative age. The principal of cross-cutting relationships can determine relative ages. Read More
Stratigraphic correlation Read More
Geologists can determine the ages of rocks and fossils by analyzing the isotopes found in them Read More
No, Sorry ages 10-12 is preteen. Pre means before so it's the close ages before the teens. Read More
Aside from carbon-14, rocks that can be radiometrically dated are mostly igneous and metamorphic rocks. most sedimentary rocks cannot be dated by this method. this is because many sedimentary rocks are made up of particles eroded from older rocks. dateing these pieces only gives the age of the preexisting rock from which it came.
