Klappentext:
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Principle of Original Horizontality was proposed by the Danish geological pioneer Nicholas Steno (1638-1686). This principle states that layers of sediment are originally deposited horizontally. The principle is important to the analysis of folded and tilted strata. From these observations is derived the conclusion that the Earth has not been static and that great forces have been at work over long periods of time, further leading to the conclusions of the science of plate tectonics; that movement and collisions of large plates of the Earth's crust is the cause of folded strata. As one of Steno's Laws, the Principle of Original Horizontality served well in the nascent days of geological science. However, it is now known that not all sedimentary layers are deposited purely horizontally.
