Articles: Glaciers, Glacial marine sediment, Ice ages. The beginning of a glacier; the zone in which snowfall exceeds the loss of snow by melting or evaporation.
An overall Matuyama-Brunhes reversal age of 783.4 ± 0.6 ka is calculated, which allowing for inherent uncertainties in the astronomical dating approach, is indistinguishable from the LR04 stack age (780 ± 5 ka) for the geomagnetic boundary.
320 ka, numerous lava dams formed near the modern-day Lava Falls area.
Field observations and new dam reconstructions require a new model for how the Colorado River interacted with ephemeral lava dams in Grand Canyon.

An accumulation of sediment which forms in a trench.
The observation that the geological record can be explained in terms of the sort of geological processes that actually happen.
Sandstone formed from sand deposited by the wind, i.e.
