Earth's geologic timescale

The geological timescale It is a chronological dating system that relates geological strata (stratigraphy) with time.

It is used by geologists, paleontologists, and other scientists to describe the timing and relationships of events that have occurred during Earth's history.

Geological division of the Earth

The geological chronology is divided into eons that are four:

Hadic
Archaic
Proterozoic
Phanerozoic

The eons in turn are divided into eras, which in turn are divided into periods, epochs, and ages.

Geological periods

Archaic:

Eoarchic
Paleoarchic
Mesoarchic
Neoarchic

Proterozoic:

Mesozoic:
