Summary:
"This book 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 correlational markers. Extensive use is made of stable and unstable isotopes, geochronology, geomathematics, and orbital tuning to produce a standard geologic  Read more...

Abstract:

"This book 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 correlational markers. Extensive use is made of stable and unstable isotopes, geochronology, geomathematics, and orbital tuning to produce a standard geologic scale of unprecedented detail and accuracy with a full error analysis. A wallchart summarizing the whole time scale, with paleogeographic reconstructions throughout the Phanerozoic is included in the back of the book."--BOOK JACKET.
