The principle of lateral continuity states that layers of sediment initially extend
laterally in all directions; in other words, they are laterally continuous. As a result
The principle of original lateral continuity proposes strata originally extended in
all directions until they thinned to zero or terminated against the edges of their ...

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.
