'The colorful previous editions of the Geological Time Table have
been immensely popular with scientists, professors, and students
alike. The new and revised sixth edition provides practicing
geologists, archaeologists, and Earth historians with a succinct
source of reference to stratigraphy and chronostratigraphy. It
provides easy access to numerical ages, including the stratigraphic
subdivisions and the ages of prominent mountain-building,
paleoceanographic, paleoclimatological and evolutionary events in
The linear time scale has been thoroughly revised, utilizing recent
developments in geochronology and radiochronology, especially where
there have been major revisions in age dating. An attempt has been
made to update all regional stratigraphic schemes based on the most
recent information. It also lists major events in how mountain
ranges are formed, geomagnetic polarity reversal, and unusual
seafloor magnetic records, where available. Major biotic events,
prominent geodynamic, oceanographic and geochemical events and
glacial episodes of the Phanerozoic can also be found for quick
A series of paleogeographic maps showing major geographic and
oceanographic changes are included as an educational tool and
glacial and archaeological classifications complete the utility of
the chart for paleoclimatology and archaeology. An index is
provided for quick and easy reference to the terms within the body
of the Table.'
