The relative scale of geologic time is based on superposition and fossil succession, whereas radiometric dating provides an absolute scale in which events are measured in years.
The relative scale of geologic time is based on absolute scale in which events are measured in years, whereas absolute dating provides superposition and fossil succession.
The relative scale of geologic time is based on sedimentary archives, whereas absolute dating provides a final comparison between two geological entities.
The relative scale of geologic time is based on event stratigraphy and marker beds, whereas absolute dating provides a numeric scale in which events are measured by isotopes and fossils.
There is no difference between the relative scale and the absolute scale of geologic time.
