Stratigraphic Geology or Stratigraphy is a branch of geology that studies rock layers and layering (stratification). It is primarily used in the study of sedimentary and layered volcanic rocks.

Sedimentary rock is one of the three main rock groups (the others being igneous and metamorphic rock). Stratigraphy includes two related subfields: lithologic or lithostratigraphy and biologic stratigraphy or biostratigraphy. Lithostratigraphy is the geological science associated with the study of strata or rock layers.
