(1) principle of original horizontality
(2) principle of cross-cutting relationships
(3) principle of stratigraphic superposition
(4) principle of lateral continuity

Dear Institute A Participants,
This is the viewing software for looking at geologic maps, etc., on your computer. You need this installed on your computer for next week's activities. It is an add-in for Internet Explorer. I look forward to meeting you all next week!
Link to web site where you can download the software. It is called ExpressView by Lizard Technologies.
