Geologists look at the age of the Earth in terms of Millions of years. They have, over time, had to devise a timescale that allows all geologists to sequence events in the same order as each other. The geological timescale itself is controlled by geological principles, from relative dating, where ages are determined by whether events are prior to, or after another event, to absolute dating, where the ages of events are determined by numerical years.

Sorry, we don't have a record of any course coordinators.
This course is designed to show the methods used to place events in their relative orders, and the techniques for dating the events numerically. The course also aims to develop an understanding in students that the Earth is a dynamic system and these geological events are still occurring today.
This course is available in both the first half session and through the Summer
Sorry, we don't have that information available.
