Editorial Reviews


"A triumph of scholarship, that will serve the professsion and the public well."
Episodes, June 2005, John A. Van Couvering

"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, John Stockwell

Book Description

An international team of over forty stratigraphic experts have helped to build the most up to date international stratigraphic framework for the Precambrian and Phanerozoic. As successor to A Geologic Time Scale 1989 by W. Brian Harland et al., it first introduces the theory and methodology behind the construction of the new time scale, before presenting the scale itself in extensive detail. A large wallchart summarising the whole time scale is included in the back of the book. This is an invaluable reference source for researchers and students.

Format: Paperback
This is titled as '2004', and published in 2005: Then we expect explanation of the Ediacaran Period just proposed to IUGC and ratified in Spring 2004. Nevertheless there is no chapter for this new and curious Period, and more surprisingly, no discussion is made on Cambrian-Ediacaran boundary which should have been a grave subject for International Commission of Stratigraphy (This book is formally written by members of the Commission). A truly disappointing feature for the 'latest' book.
