Followers of Hutton were known as Plutonists because they believed that some rocks were formed by vulcanism which is the deposition of lava from volcanoes, as opposed to the Neptunists, who believed that all rocks had settled out of a large ocean whose level gradually dropped over time. An active American Chemical Society Student Affiliates chapter (the Chem Club) provides a cultural and professional environment that enriches the academic experience. Application of isotope techniques to stratigraphy; isotope systematics of sedimentary depositional environments; emphasis on utilization of isotopes as stratigraphic markers; interpretation of geological events from time-series isotope records.

They can be thought of as a composite of the dip slip and strike slip faults. Both ice and rock salt can be fractured with a hammer blow, yet both can create flow structures as if they were viscous fluids. A pretty extensive list of geology terms, many of which you'll see on the Physical Geology DSST.
