Day 135: Geologic History; Solomon Tsunami April 2, 2007

Posted by Admin in Geology, Science in the News.


What do the terms Eon, Era, and Period have in common?  They are all terms that describe varying lengths of time in the geologic history of the Earth.  We examined these in great detail today after defining “Geologic Timeline” as the quantification of the history of the Earth into discreet intervals of time.

Following the Geologic Timeframe terminology notes, we took a look at Google Maps and examined the area of the latest Tsunami that occured over the weekend, killing more than a dozen people on the Solomon Islands.
