PALEOCLIMATIC CHANGE ALONG THE CALIFORNIA MARGIN   In an effort to understand Earth's past, geologists search for the clues that are preserved in sedimentary rocks.  By carefully looking at the remains of life and bits of eroded rock, geologic investigations expose details of events that record Earth history.  Each layer of a sedimentary sequence reads like an event in a book.  Reading from the bottom up, the layers provide physical and chemical evidence that tell a story of geologic events and climatic change that have occurred through time.
