geological timescales

The geological time scale (GTS) relates the position of buried rock layers to time, and is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other Earth scientists to describe the timing and relationships between events that have occurred throughout Earth’s history. A basic principle of GTS is the idea that the deeper a layer is, the further in the past it was deposited.
