    Relative Dating Principles; Grand Canyon Example; Unconformities; Applying Relative Dating Principles; References; Relative dating is the process of determining if one rock or geologic event is older or younger than another, without knowing their specific ages—i.e., how many years ago the object was formed. The principles of relative time are simple, even obvious. This last river trip was quite special as it included alumni from the Geology Program at Northern Arizona University. In all, we had 15 alumni and two current professors in the program. It was a thrill to be able to discuss the geology of the Grand Canyon in such depth - those who graduated from the program as early as have not lost any interest in the on: Flagstaff, Arizona, United States.
