As successor to A Geologic Time Scale 1989 by W. Brian Harland et al., it first introduces the theory and methodology behind the construction of the new time scale, before presenting the scale itself in extensive detail. A large wallchart summarising the whole time scale is included in the back of the book. This is an invaluable reference source for researchers and students.

Review:

"A triumph of scholarship, that will serve the professsion and the public well."
Episodes, June 2005, John A. Van Couvering

"The editors have succeeded admirably in compiling a work that is dense with information but is both beautiful in layout and extremely readable...The book is a masterpiece of presentation...an amazing work that provides a new standard for both geochronology, and for committee-driven scientific project reports."
The Leading Edge, John Stockwell

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Condition: New. 3rd ed. Language: English. Brand new Book. An international team of over forty stratigraphic experts have helped to build the most up-to-date international stratigraphic framework for the Precambrian and Phanerozoic. This successor to A Geologic Time Scale 1989 by W. Brian Harland et al. (CUP 0521 387655) begins with an introduction to the theory and methodology behind the construction of the new time scale. The main part of the book is devoted to the scale itself, systematically presenting the standard subdivisions at all levels using a variety of correlation markers. Extensive use is made of isotope geochronology, geomathematics and orbital tuning to produce a standard geologic scale of unprecedented detail and accuracy with a full error analysis. A wallchart summarising the whole time scale, with paleogeographic reconstructions throughout the Phanerozoic, is included in the back of the book. The time scale will be an invaluable reference source for academic and professional researchers and students. Seller Inventory # AAA9780521786737
