Welcome to the Geology Wing
Exploring this series of exhibits will take you on a journey through the history of the Earth, with stops at particular points in time to examine the fossil record and stratigraphy. The Geology Wing is organized according to the geologic time scale. If you wish to begin browsing now, click on any division of the time scale below You might wish to start in the Cenozoic Era (65 million years ago to the present) and work back through time, or start with Hadean time (4.5 to 3.8 billion years ago) and journey forward to the present day. No matter "when" you start, don't forget to stop along the way to learn about the stratigraphy, ancient life, fossil localities, and tectonics of the various time periods. Here are three links that can help to speed your journey:

Geology 12 - CSUS - Spring 2001
Taught by Dr. Nancy Buening
updated April 1st
Historical Geology examines the origin and evolution of Earth, its continents, atmosphere, oceans, and life. It is the study of a dynamic planet that has changed over 4.6 billion years. We study the processes that have shaped, and continue to shape the Earth and the life on Earth. We will discuss how geologists interpret this history of change from evidence in the rocks. This web site will keep you informed about the course, specifically the course syllabus, homework assignments, and information about exams.

Klondike Gold Rush
National Historical Park

"The country is wild, rough and full of hardships for those unused to the rigors of Arctic winters. If a man makes a fortune he is liable to earn it by severe hardship and sufferings. But, then, grit, perseverance and luck will probably reward a hard worker with a comfortable income for life."

Clarence Berry , one of the miners returning on the Portland, quoted in The Seattle Post-lntelligencer, July 17,1897. With cries of "Gold! Gold in the Klondike!" there unfolded in the Yukon and Alaska an incredible historic adventure, whose theme of human endeavor in the face of adversity captured the imagination of people around the world. In August 1896 when George Washington Carmack and his two Indian companions, Skookum Jim and Tagish Charlie , found gold in a tributary of the Klondike River in Canada's Yukon Territory, they had no idea that they would set off one of the greatest gold rushes in history. True, most of the good claims were already staked by the time the rush really got underway in the summer of 1897; but this didn't stop an army of hopeful goldseekers from boarding ships at Seattle and other Pacific port cities and heading north to try their luck. Throughout the summer and autumn of 1897 and on into the winter, stampeders poured into the newly created Alaskan tent and shack towns of

Provides a brief summary of the evolutionary origins of modern species. CONTENT SAMPLE: 12 - Therapsid flourished approximately 230 million years ago. This group branched early from the main reptilian line (although they were in fact reptiles) and went on to provide the embryological ancestry for the mammals. During the reign of the large reptiles, this line dwindled to small forms. With the extinction of the dinosaurs came a corresponding rise in mammals that had developed adaptations superior to their ancestors. The limb development (adapted to terrestrial locomotion) as well as greater intelligence aided mammalian succession. Ectoderms generally obtain heat from their external environment.

    3.3 million acres of spectacular desert scenery, rare desert wildlife, complex geology, undisturbed wilderness and sites of historical interest.

    Death Valley National Park comprises more than 3.3 million acres of spectacular desert scenery, rare desert wildlife, complex geology, undisturbed wilderness and sites of historical interest. Death Valley is unique because it contains the lowest, hottest, driest location in North America. Nearly 550 square miles of its area lie below sea level. Ecologically, its plants and animals are representative of the Mojave Desert. Death Valley is one of the hottest places on earth, attaining the second-highest temperature ever recorded, 134 degrees F. in 1913. It contains the lowest point in the western hemisphere 282 feet below sea level near Badwater as well as numerous high-rising mountain peaks, including Telescope Peak at over 11,000 feet. Death Valley was named by gold-seekers, some of whom died crossing the valley during the 1849 California gold rush.
    General Information
    Entrance: $10.00 per vehicle is valid for seven days.
    Campground: Fees range from $10.00 to $16.00 per night.

    Mexican Petroleum Geology—Historical Review
    James Lee Wilson ,, 1316 Patio Drive, New Braunfels, TX 78130, phone: 830-625-6612, and Clif Jordan,, 6878 Cedar Lane, Bonne Terre, MO 63628. The sequence of events described below incorporates both political and geological aspects of Mexico’s rich petroleum history. The period 1904 to 1910 saw the discovery of oil in fractured Cretaceous lime mudstones in the Ebano-Panuco area on the Tamaulipas arch, when El Aguila and other foreign companies operated. By 1916, a chain of local structures was recognized encircling the Tuxpan platform and forming an oval map pattern known as the Golden Lane. Some of these wells still hold world records for IP’s of over 200,000 BOPD. Expropriation occurred in 1938. A national oil company, Petroleos Mexicanos, was created at this time. From 1932 onward important paleontological studies aided exploration, helped define a new reservoir facies in diagenetically altered, downslope reef talus of the giant Poza Rica field, with its ultimate production estimated at 2.5 BBO. From the 1930’s to 1970 gas was discovered and developed in Tertiary sediments filling coastal basins, such as the Veracruz, Macuspana, Sabinas, and Burgos basins. These areas are now being drilled in the search for more gas reserves, and it is estimated that these fields together can provide more than 4.8 BCFGD. In the early 1970’s Cretaceous oil was discovered over the Villahermosa horst (Reforma), and at least 25 giant oil fields were mapped using seismic reflection technology. More recent exploration has resulted in the discovery of many more giant fields on the offshore Campeche Shelf. Present emphasis involves a continued search for facies favorable for Jurassic oil. These wells range from 2000-4000m deep.

    Introduction to Historical Geology
    Historical Geology is the study of changes to Earth and life in time and space.
    I. Time
    A. How much time?
    • Oldest meteorites and oldest moon rocks are 4.6 billion years old
      4,600,000,000 years
    • Oldest rocks found so far on Earth are zircon grains from a sandstone in western Australia, dated at 4.1 to 4.2 bilion years old. Previously, the oldest Earth rocks were 3.96 billion years old, from the Northwest Territories of Canada.
    B. How do we know? Radioactive materials serve as geologic clocks. C. What happened on the Earth during this long period of time? Many natural events:
    • meteorite impacts volcanic eruptions and lava flows mountain building earthquakes erosion slow movement of continents (plate tectonics) formation and destruction of ocean basins (plate tectonics) glaciations climatic changes etc.
    All of these natural events are still going on today - We see evidence in the rock record that these events have been occurring for a long time. Geologists call this uniformitarianism.
