Transcript

  • 1. Friday, January 30, 2015 The Earth’s Crust Sedimentary Rock and The Geologic Time Scale
  • 2. Canal construction – 19th century. Many layers of sedimentary rock were discovered along with fossils of animals that no longer existed.
  • 3. Fossils were discovered at multiple sites around the world, including the Grand Canyon. Scientists began to speculate that the Earth was much older that previously thought.
  • 4. Piecing together the evidence from layers all over the planet (and using radioactive dating techniques) scientists have come up with the Geologic Time Scale of Earth’s History.
  • 5. The Earth is 4.5 Billion years old and it’s history is broken into four parts or eras:
  • 6. #1 Precambrian Era - 4.5 Billion to 600 million years ago – first life
  • 7. #2 Paleozoic Era – 600 to 225 million years ago
  • 8. #3 Mesozoic Era – 225 to 65 million years ago – The age of dinosaurs
  • 9. #4 Cenozoic Era – 65 million years ago to present - Recent life
