laterally in all directions; in other words, they are laterally continuous. As a result

3) Law of Lateral Continuity– Horizontal strata extend laterally until they thin to
zero thickness (pinch out) at the edge of their basin of deposition. Other Important
Principle of lateral continuity Steno's third principle is to assume that a stratum
cannot end abruptly within a basin of deposition, but must feather out, or extend ...
Steno's final principle is the “principle of lateral continuity,” which says that
sediment layers spread out until they reach an obstacle that keeps them from ...
Lateral Continuity- sedimentary rocks are laterally continuous over large areas. A
useful way for Wisconsinites to consider this law is to think of snowfalls.
The Principle of Lateral Continuity: Rock layers extend for some distance over
Earth's surface—from a few meters to hundreds of kilometers, depending on the ...
