The Geologic Time Scale (Chronological Order)

  1. 1. Jason John V. Tabujara BSEdGS IV STA RT
  2. 2. WHAT IS A GEOLOGIC TIME SCALE? System of chronologic measurement relating to stratigraphy to time that is used by geologist and other earth scientists
  3. 3. INTRODUCTION TO CONCEPT: The period is the basic unit of geological time in which a single type of rock system is formed. Two or more periods comprise a geological Era. Two or more Eras form an Eon, the largest division of geologic time. Some periods are divided into epochs. The major periods in the geologic history of the Earth are (mya=million years ago):

  5. 5. Hadean, Archean and Proterozoic Eons
  6. 6. PRECAMBRIAN Hadean Eon 4.6 to 3.9 billion years ago “Rockless Eon" - The solidifying of the Earth's continental and oceanic crusts. Archeozoic Eon (Archean) 3.9 to 2.5 billion years ago "Ancient Life" The first life forms evolve Proterozoic Eon 2.5 billion years ago to 540 mya *multi-celled, animals appear, including sponges. *Single supercontinent called Rodinia. *First multicellular life: colonial algae and soft-bodied invertebrates appear.
