Sediment will continue to be transported to an area and it will eventually be deposited.
In the Grand Canyon, the layers of strata are nearly horizontal. Green Screen. Particular isotopes are suitable for different applications due to the types of atoms present in the mineral or other material and its approximate age. Uranium—lead dating. As the mineral cools, the crystal structure begins to form and diffusion of isotopes is less easy. Radiogenic isotope geology 2nd ed.
