WHAT DOES DIACHRONOUS MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Diachronous

A diachronous deposit in Geology is a sedimentary rock formation in which apparently similar material varies in age from place to place. Typically this occurs as a result of a marine transgression or regression, or the progressive development of a delta. As the shoreline advances or retreats, a succession of continuous deposits representing different environments may be left behind. Although each type of deposit may be continuous over a wide area, its age varies according to the position of the shoreline through time. An example is the sandy beds near the end of the lower Carboniferous of the west of England. Deposition of this began much later in the Bristol area than further north. The detection of diachronous beds can be quite problematic since fossil assemblages tend to migrate geographically with their environment of formation. They are generally revealed by the presence of marker species, fossils which can be dated reliably from other beds.
