Overleiring (geologi)

Overleiring (også kalt superposisjon) er et viktig begrep i Nicolaus Stenos geologiske prinsipper om lateral kontinuitet, som tilsier at et lag som ligger over et annet lag er yngre. Det er yngre fordi det ble avsatt senere. Det er derimot ikke alltid at det yngste laget ligger øverst i dagen, fordi det kan skje geologiske hendelser som velter om hele kolonnen av lag.
