THE TEACHER DEMONSTRATES KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH HISTORY
EARTH HISTORY
IMPORTANT WORDS OF EARTH COMPS
SOLAR NEBULA
PRIMORDIAL ATMOSPHERE
PLATE TECTONICS
SUPERCONTIENT
GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE
RADIOMETRIC DATING
FOSSILIZATION
SUPERPOSTITION+ CORRELATIVE
DESCRIBER 1
THE EARTH FORMED APPROXIMATELY 4.6 BILLION YEARS AGO AND BOTH geological and biolgical processes have been shading it ever since
describor 2
teh history of the earth can be subdivied into units of time according to geological and biological processes: these subdivisions called Geological time scale
descriptor 3
the study of fossils, rock stratigraphy and radiometric dating have contributed to creating teh geiological time scale
based avaiblabe evidence
earth is belived to have formed 4.6 billion years ago IN THE sOLAR NEBULA
SOLAR NEBULA
A CLOUD OF HOT GAS, ALONG WITH ThE sUN AND OTHER PLANETS.
INITAIALLY MOLTEN (LIQUID)
OUTER LAYER PLANENT COOLED
-WHEN WATER BEGAN TO COOL
-WATER BECAME COOLING IN ATMOSPHERE
-RESLUTING THE SOLID CRUST
-MOON FORMED AFTER, POSSIBLE THE RESULT OF IMPACT WITH ANOHTHER SPACE OBJECT
THE PHENOMENA CALLED OUTGASSING
THE SLOW RELEASE OF GAS FROM THE INSIDE OF THE PLANET) AND THE RELEASE OF GAS FROM THE INSIDE OF THE PLANET
THE RELEASE OF CAS FROM VOLCANIC ACTIVITY PRODUCED BY
THE PRIMORDIAL ATMOSPHERE (THAT LACKED OXYGEN): CONDESING WATER VAPOR PRODUCED THE OCEAN
ORGIN OF THE EARTH
THREMODUS AMOUNTS OF ENERGY PRESENT EARLY EARTH
-PRESENDS OF WATER BELIEVED TO HAVE SUITIABLE CONDITIONS FOR CREATION OF SELFREPLICATIONG 4 BILLIOIN YRS AG, AND HALF A BILLION YR
LATER
-COMMEN ANCESTOR OF ALL LIVED
A) THE ORGIN OF THE EARTH CONT
PLATE TETONICS
100+ MILLION YRS CONTINENTS FORMED
-BROKE UP FOR THE SURFACE OF THE EARTH
-CONTINUE RESHAPED ITSELF DUE TO THE PROCESS
PLATE TRONICS
CONINENTS MIGRATED ACROSS
SURFACE ON EARTH
-OCCASION COMBINE FORM OF SUPRCONTINET
ROUGHLY 75O MILLIONSYRS AGO
THE EARLIEST KNOWN AS SUPERCONTINETN RODIAN BENAN BREAKING APART
RODINIA
A SUPERONTENINT AT ONE POINE
CONTIENTS COMBINED FORM
PANNOTIEA 600-450 MILL YARS AGO
-PANGEA BROKE APART 180 MILL YRS AGO
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-HISTORY OF THE EARTH
BROKEN UP INTO TIME INTERVALS, COOLECTIVILY CALLED THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-SOME OF THE MAJOR DIVISIONS IS
EON
ERA
PERIOND
EPOCH
AGE
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-EPOCH
a distinctive historical period or era
a unit of the geologic time scale, less than a period and greater than an age
a phase in the development of the universe with distinctive properties
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-GEOLOGICAL TIME DIVISIONS BASED ON
GEOLOGICAL/BIOLOGICAL EVENTS AND INFORMATION USED CONSTRUCT IME SCALE TAKEN FROM THE STUDY OF STRATIGRAPHY
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE
STRATIGRAPHY
THE STUDY OF THE LAYERS OF THE EARTH'S SURFACE
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE
RADIOMetric dating
TEH RADIOMETRIC DATING OF ROCKS, AND THE ANALYSIS OF FOSSILS
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-
RADIOMetric dating
the dating of materials by analyzing the decay of radioactive isotopes incorpoerated them when they were formed
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-fossilazation
we saw sedimetary roks formed, while particles accumulate, living things theri traces get buried in process
-which increase pressure & chemical changes, particles compressed into rocks and traces of life are trapped with become fossils
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-TEH TYPES FOSSIL SPECIES PRESENT
ROCK FORMATIONS ALLOW SCIENTISTS
-U WHAT PARTICULAR CONDITIONS PRESENT AT PARTICULAR TIMES IN EARTH HISTORY
-
B) THE GEOLOGICAL TIME SCALE-RADIOMETRIC DECAY WITH PRINCIPLES OF
RADIOMETRIC DECAY AND PRINCIPLES OF (SUPERPOSITION/CORRELATIONS WILL AID SCIENTIST DATING FOSSILS
SUPER POSITION AND CORRELATIONS
-CONSEPT OF SUPERPOSITION STATES IN AN UNDISTURBED HORIZONTIAL SEQUENCE OF ROCKS
-OLD ROCKS ON BOTTEM, NEWEST ON TOP
SUPER POSITION AND CORRELATIONS (PART 2)
-PRINCIPLE HOLDS TRUE ALL ROCK FORMATIONS ON THE PLANET:
-IF A SEQUENCE IS DISTRUBED INCOMPLETE
-SCIENTES CAN CORRELATE PART OF SEQUENCE THEY HAVE SOME OTHER ROCK FORMATION TO FILL IN OTHER MISSING PARTS
THE TEACHER DEMOS
-KNOWLEDGE OF EARTH HISTORY AND PROCESS THAT SHAPED THE EARTH
-TEACHER U THE ORGIN AND APPLS OF THE GEOLOGIC Time AND BASIC CONCEPTS WHICH SCIENTIS USED TO CONSTRUCT IT
