Aspects:
Comments: This stratigraphic relationship is anti-symmetric; that is, if stratum A is supported by unit B, this implies that B cannot be supported by A. This stratigraphic relationship allows all temporal orders: the source stratum may be prior, contemporary or posterior to the destination stratigraphic unit. However, the most frequent situation is that el the source stratum is posterior to the destination stratigraphic unit.
