In geology, stratigraphy is the study of rock layers within the earth. Coined by the 17th century Danish scientist Nicolas Steno, a pioneer in the fields of anatomical and geological science, The Law of Superposition states, “Sedimentary layers are deposited in a time sequence, with the oldest on the bottom and the youngest on the top.”
