Disconformity, Death Valley, California. Disconformities are unconformities in which the younger
material is roughly parallel to the contact--and thus appears to be concordant. This photograph shows
the rocks being parallel on the left side. However, on the right it shows the gravel cutting down into
the marble to indicate erosion. Photo is approximately 1 meter across.
