Experiments In Stratification

<p><span id="long-desc" style="display: inline;">One of my favorite short
documentaries about Geology. Guy Berthault discusses some evidences from
deep sea drilling, deposits at the mouths of rivers, and work done in
concert with hydrologists at the Colorado State University hydraulics
laboratory at Fort Collins.</span></p><p><br />I highly recommend watching these two short videos:</p><p>&nbsp;★ Geo-Blunder: No "Millions of Years"! - 3minutes:<br />http://youtu.be/RsvVMjsnDVU</p><p>&nbsp;★ Fossils in Layers Made By Mt. St. Helens<br />http://youtu.be/9wR7jg0UQ14</p><p><span id="long-desc" style="display: inline;">-------------------------------------<br />"Guy Berthault uses laboratory and sediment flume
experiments to test accepted principles for the formation of strata. He
shows, using easy to follow computer animation, that in moving currents
several of the basic principles of stratigraphy do not apply. These principles, including the principles of superposition and
continuity, are applicable only in calm water. He applies flume
experiments to the real world of strata, mainly the formation of the
layers in the Grand Canyon. Long periods of time are not required to
deposit a sequence of strata in a moving current, and multiple beds can
be deposited simultaneously, especially as a result of changing current
speeds. His results have profound implications for the geological column
and the interpretation of fossil sequences."<br /> ---------------------------------</span></p><p><span id="long-desc" style="display: inline;">Best article on this work:<br />
