  4. 4. How does one construct a geological time scale? By studying rock layers [Stratigraphy] Mining Bottom-most layer = oldest; topmost layer = newest ← Principle of Uniformitarianism (geology) Fossils, artifacts, ecofacts, biofacts; evidence in the different layers
  5. 5. Segments of rock (strata) in chronostratigraphy Units Time spans in geochronology Notes to geochronological units Eonothem Eon Half a billion years or more Erathem Era Several hundred million years System Period Few hundred million years Series Epoch Tens of millions of years Stage Age Millions of years
  6. 6. Age of the Earth : 4.54 ± 0.05 billion years
