The geologic time classification of the United States Geological Survey compared with other classifications, accompanied by the original definitions of era, period and epoch terms. Bulletin   A geomorphic classification of inland wetlands on criteria other than vegetation is proposed, based on their host landform and degree of wetness. Thus, the classification addresses the underlying structure of most inland wetlands, i.e. their landform setting and their various types of hydroperiod. Landforms host to wetlands include: basins, channels, flats, slopes and hills/ by: 6. Stratigraphic nomenclature. The system of proper names given to specific stratigraphic units. 7. body of rock in many different categories of stratigraphic classification. The type of zone indicated is made clear by a prefix, e.g., lithozone, biozone, chronozone. 8. Horizon.
