relative dating and numerical dating-14

Numerical dating is when you are trying to determine how long ago something took place or specifically how old something or someone is.

These strata make up much of the famous prominent rock formations in widely spaced protected areas such as Capitol Reef National Park and Canyonlands National Park.

From top to bottom: Rounded tan domes of the Navajo Sandstone, layered red Kayenta Formation, cliff-forming, vertically jointed, red Wingate Sandstone, slope-forming, purplish Chinle Formation, layered, lighter-red Moenkopi Formation, and white, layered Cutler Formation sandstone.

They use absolute dating methods, sometimes called numerical dating, to give rocks an actual date, or date range, in number of years.
