The geologic time scale was completely worked out in the 19th Century using these principles without knowing any actual numeric ages for the events. The discovery of radioactivity in the late s enabled absolute dating, the assignment of numerical ages to events in the Earth’s history, using decay of unstable radioactive isotopes.

    type of calendar, called the geologic time scale. It looks very different from the familiar calendar. In some ways, it is more like a book, and the rocks are its pages. Some of the pages are torn or missing, and the pages are not numbered, but geology gives us the tools to help us read this by: 1.   Like the periodic table, the Geologic time scale is one of those amazing human endeavours to turn a vast amount of evidence from astronomy, rocks, fossils, history and politics into a nifty little Author: Mark Carnall.

Geological Survey (Sponsor) U.S. Geological Survey General Information Product   Humans subdivide time into useable units such as our calendar year, months, weeks, and days; geologists also subdivide time.

They have created a tool for measuring geologic time, breaking it into useable, understandable segments. For the purposes of geology, the “calendar” is the geologic time scale. One way to distinguish and define each.
