Category: Historical geology
Provides up-to-date and expanded coverage of the metamorphic span of Earth's history as told through fossils, rocks and species, from the very origins of the planet to the current Holocene interglacial period Annotation. Covering the metamorphic span of Earth's history as told through its fossils, rocks, and species, this book chronicles the emergence of each successive group of plants and animals. Chapters are organized according to the different geologic time periods, from the origins of the planet to the current Holocene interglacial period. An introduction details basic geological concepts, and black and white illustrations are featured throughout. Erickson is a geologist.

Offering comprehensive content for the historical geology course, HISTORICAL GEOLOGY provides students with an understanding of the principles of historical geology and how these principles are applied in unraveling Earth's history. Students will learn and understand the underlying causes of why things happened and the way they did, and how all of Earth's systems and subsystems are interrelated. Students will understand the relevancy of Earth's history as part of a dynamic and complex integrated system, not as a series of isolated and unrelated events Important Notice: Media content referenced within the product description or the product text may not be available in the ebook version.
Interpretations and Applications
Author: Jon M. Poort,Roseann J. Carlson
Publisher: Pearson College Division
This book covers topics essential to historical geology. The manual presents fundamental concepts of historical geology by providing realistic situations to which geologic concepts and data apply. This application of principles to concrete situations and practical problems instills a strong sense of the purpose of geologic study. KEY TOPICS: This book allows readers to visualize how geologic data are collected, tabulated, synthesized, interpreted, and applied to real-world geologic problems. Covering important concepts of ordering geological events and physical stratigraphy, the book also provides sections on plate tectonics and paleontology as well as extensive geologic maps with explanations. The fifth edition of Historical Geology, Interpretations and Applications has been revised to include new problems and a relocation of some problems closer to their explanatory material. It also includes four new geologic maps that cover geologic features in greater detail. A valuable reference book for any reader interested in historical geology.

A Manual in Historical Geology, Eighth Edition
Author: Scott Ritter,Morris Petersen
Publisher: Waveland Press
The Eighth Edition of Interpreting Earth History continues a legacy of authoritative coverage, providing the flexibility and scope necessary to engage students with geological data from a variety of sources and scales. The authors carefully review the subjects covered in current historical geology courses and have tailored each stand-alone assignment to offer a clear, straightforward examination of pertinent topics. The content of this classroom-tested laboratory manual has been expanded and enhanced to include exercises on the Precambrian history of the Canadian Shield as well as an understanding of the stratigraphic, structural, and depositional history of North America during the Phanerozoic Eon. Now in full color, students will become more proficient in their ability to see and recognize geological patterns as well as the compositional and textural attributes of rocks and fossils.

Overview: This Awesome Science: Historical Geology Teacher Guide contains materials for use with The True North Series and The Awesome Science DVD series. Materials are organized by book in the following sections: Lesson PlannerWeekly Lesson ScheduleStudent WorksheetsQuizzes & TestAnswer Key 7th - 8th grade 1 Year 1 Credit Features: Each suggested weekly schedule has three to five easy-to-manage lessons that combine reading, worksheets, and vocabulary-building opportunities. Worksheets, quizzes, and tests are perforated and three-hole punched – materials are easy to tear out, hand out, grade, and store. As always, you are encouraged to adjust the schedule and materials needed to in order to best work within your educational program. Workflow: Students will read the pages in their book and then complete each section of the PLP. Tests are given at regular intervals with space to record each grade. If used with younger students, they may be given the option of taking open-book tests Lesson Scheduling: Space is given for assignment dates. There is flexibility in scheduling. For example, the parent may opt for a M–W schedule rather than a M, W, F schedule. Each week listed has five days but due to vacations the school work week may not be M–F. Adapt the days to your school schedule. As the student completes each assignment, he/she should put an “X” in the box.

‘Historical Geology of India’ is a text book for graduate and post-graduate students of geology, geophysics and other earth sciences for Indian Universities. It also caters to the universities of USA, UK, Australia, New Zealand and Canada as one or two credit courses on regional studies are included in the curriculum. Besides it can be useful to professional geologists and geophysicists working on various projects in India. The book has been specially designed to cover the course content of major Indian Universities and the approved syllabi of the University Grants Commission. This book has not been written in the classical style of what is where and when was it formed; instead there has been an attempt to base the entire history on the time control as available from latest data on high resolution stratigraphy through fossil content, radiometric dating and palaeomagnetic studies. There is a special focus on the tectonic history of the entire subcontinent through time from Precambrian times to present day.
