Abstract. A foam is a space-filling cellular pattern, that can be decomposed into successive layers or strata.
Each layer contains all cells at the same topological distance to an origin (cell, cluster of cells, or basal
layer). The disorder of the underlying structure imposes a characteristic roughening of the layers. In this
paper, stratifications are described as the results a deterministic "invasion" process started from different
