Peat Bog profile based on core data

The correlation of rock units of an area to another using palynomorphs is called biostratigraphy. By finding the same succession of layers, which contain specific pollen assemblages, over different places, the relative age and depth of specific layers can be determined. This method can be useful to guide drilling economical fossil deposits, such as coal, oil and natural gas.
