About the Authors
  • A successor to A Geologic Time Scale 1989 (Cambridge, 1990), this volume introduces the theory and methodology behind the construction of the new time scale, before presenting the scale itself in extensive detail. An international team of over forty stratigraphic experts develops the most up-to-date international stratigraphic framework for the Precambrian and Phanerozoic eras. A large wallchart (not available for eBook) summarizing the time scale at the back of the book completes this invaluable reference for researchers and students.

    • The most detailed international geologic time scale available
    • Includes a full-colour wallchart
    • Compiled by international team of experts
    • Ratified by the International Commission on Stratigraphy
    • Uses the foremost methodologies

    "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
