Historical Geology differs frommany other fields of science


Hard sciences e g chemistry and physics l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

"Hard Sciences”e.g. Chemistry and Physics

Deductive reasoning:

Predicts results from known causes


Historical geology interpretive science l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Historical GeologyInterpretive Science

Inductive reasoning:

Interpretation of ancient causes

from observable historical results


Historical geology interpretive science19 l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Historical GeologyInterpretive Science

• No equation for mountains.

• No formula for extinction of dinosaurs.

• Historical Geology is like CSI.


Historical geology interpretive science20 l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Historical GeologyInterpretive Science

Based on:

•observations (clues) and

• your knowledge of physical geology

and biological concepts


Historical geology interpretive science21 l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Historical GeologyInterpretive Science

• you reconstruct a sequence of events

that occurred over geologic time;

• then develop an explanation of events

that account for object you are studying.

note: inductive reasoning does not

absolve us from quantification


Fields of geology l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Fields of Geology

Petrology: study of the formation of rocks.

Sedimentary, Igneous, & Metamorphic.

Sedimentology: environments, depositional process & rocks.

Stratigraphy: relationships of strata in time and space.

Structural Geology: how rocks are deformed during stress.

Mountain building and Plate Tectonics.

Paleontology: study of ancient life.


Fields of geology24 l.jpg

Historical Geology – Introduction

Fields of Geology

Geochemistry & Geophysics: application of

chemistry and physics to the study of the earth.

Field Geology: application of all to the interpretation

of rocks "in the wild".

Slide27 l.jpg

Metaphor

4.6 billion years

= 1 calendar year

origin of the Earth = Jan 1

today = Midnight Dec 31







Slide39 l.jpg

Before Midnight

1 min. 9 sec. Dawn of Civilization 10,000yr

3.4 sec. Columbus ~500yr

14/100 sec. ASU Student ~20 yr


Slide40 l.jpg

How to calculate your own

Geologic Time Scale Metaphor

1. Choose your metaphor:

Football Field = 100 yards

Age of Earth = 4,600,000,000 yrs


Slide41 l.jpg

How to calculate your own

Geologic Time Scale Metaphor

2. Calculate Years per Metaphor Unit:

100 yards ÷ 4,600,000,000 yrs

= 2.2 x 10-8 yards/year

= 0.000000022 yards/year


Slide42 l.jpg

How to calculate your own

Geologic Time Scale Metaphor

3. Pick your key events and dates:

• First Dinosaur = 215,000,000 yrs

• Dinosaur Extinction = 65,000,000 yrs


Slide43 l.jpg

How to calculate your own

Geologic Time Scale Metaphor

4. Multiply by your unit conversion:

• First Dinosaur = 215,000,000 * 0.000000022 yards/year

= 4.7 yard line

• Dinosaur Extinction = 65,000,000 * 0.000000022 yards/year

= 1.4 yard line

origin of the Earth is 98.6 yards away
