Geological Time

Educational and fun? Hopefully both with my new artwork illustrating Geological Time.  My image was created to help visualize how far time goes back in Earth's history from modern day to its earliest period.  It was nice to stick buildings and a petrol station at the top to help identify today and use perspective in the drawing to indicate how far things go down into deep time.

In geology, layers of rock are identified and dated by whats in them (finds of fossils or minerals) These layers of time are given names e.g. Jurassic, Devonian etc and they span from today all the way back billions of years.  

Holocene,Pleistocene,Pliocene,Miocene,Oligocene,Eocene,Paleocene,Cretaceous,Jurassic,
Triassic,Permian,Carboniferous,Devonian,Silurian,Ordovician and Cambrian 
(before that is called the Pre-Cambrian and divided into the Proterozoic and Archean)


Their is a a way to remember all those names and it might be something you recall from school. Here it goes: Camels Often Sit Down Carefully Perhaps Their Joints Creak (Perhaps Effective Oiling Might Prolong Perfect Health)
