This concise handbook presents a summary of Earth's history over the past 4.5 billion years as well as a brief overview of contemporaneous events on the Moon, Mars and Venus. The authors have been at the forefront of chronostratigraphic research and initiatives to create an international geologic time scale for many years, and the charts in this book present the most up to date, international standard, as ratified by the International Commission on Stratigraphy and the International Union of Geological Sciences. This book is an essential reference for all geoscientists, including researchers, students, and petroleum and mining professionals. The presentation is non-technical and illustrated with numerous colour charts, maps and photographs. The book also includes a detachable laminated card of the complete time scale for use as a handy reference in the office, laboratory or field.

Recensioner i media

'... practical ... can be reliably recommended for any geologist who regularly refers to the time scale.' Geological Magazine

'One cannot help being struck by the amount of information in this volume ... a triumph of scholarship, that will serve the profession and the public well.' Episodes

'The book is an inspiring leader in practical stratigraphy, its philosophical roots, and its prime product: The Geologic Time Scale. It is a very important publication for graduate scholars, scientists, and sedimentologists, hydrogeologists, and petroleum geologists.' Environmental Geology

'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

'This is a volume that should be in all good geological libraries.' Geological Magazine

'At 20, in hardback, with a really stout long lasting binding and a plastic wipe-clean cover, on glossy full colour pages, an immense amount of minutely assessed factual information, supplied by innumerable workers, is summarised and clearly and succinctly presented. This is unequivocally recommended. Although research will result in newer versions, this edition will suffice for many for some time to come, if not 1myr!' Geoscientist

' ... the new book by Ogg et al. will become a true gift for everyone in the geosciences. The authors talentedly prepared an ultimate reference on the chronostratigraphical knowledge, which permits to feel as a growth of the present interest to the geologic time subdivision as the main achievements in this direction.'

Jim Ogg is a Professor in the Department Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at Purdue University and has served as Secretary-General of the International Commission on Stratigraphy since 2000. As part of this role he developed the TimeScale Creator databases and visualization system (freely available at His research specialties include Mesozoic marine stratigraphy, paleomagnetism, and climate cycles. Gabi Ogg is a micropaleontologist and is responsible for the many time scale charts and other graphics in this book and numerous other publications. Felix Gradstein is Professor of Stratigraphy and Micropaleontology at the Geology Department of the Natural History Museum of Oslo University. He was chair of the International Commission on Stratigraphy from 2000 to 2008, and under his tenure major progress was made with the definition and ratification and international acceptance of chronostratigraphic units from Precambrian through to Quaternary.
