Answer:

Due to seasons and climate on Earth.

Explanation:

Because the sediment under the sea is layered by the activity and bodies of organisms that dwell in the sea; more in summer months when the organisms are more active than in winter. Over time the thin layers differ slightly and then when they are compressed over millions of years they become stratified rocks.
