During late Paleozoic–early Mesozoic time, the geological setting of New Zealand was very different from that of today (Figs a, b & ).The Late Cretaceous–Holocene plate tectonic development of Zealandia is now quite well understood, taking account of evidence from North and South Island, Zealandia as a whole, and the surrounding oceanic and continental regions.

    Much of New Zealand, however, is made up of recycled rocks – kind of a geological second-hand store.

It is essential therefore, that we have the most accurate and precise timescale available. The New Zealand Geological Timescale is a regional geochronological timescale for the Permian to Pleistocene and comprises a sequence of stages defined in New Zealand outcrop sections.

Geologic Time Scale contains contributions from 80 leading scientists who present syntheses in an easy-to-understand format that includes numerous color charts, maps and photographs. In addition to detailed overviews of chronostratigraphy, evolution, geochemistry, sequence stratigraphy and planetary geology, the GTS volumes have separate chapters on each geologic period with Book Edition: 2.

Therefore a New Zealand geological timescale has been developed over many years, most recently led by scientists at GNS Science. Alongside international names for divisions, it organises New Zealand rocks into series and stages. This timescale is the result of a huge amount of research, and work continues to refine the dates of boundaries between units.

The authors of The Geologic Time ScaleSecond Edition have been at the forefront of chronostratigraphic research and initiatives to create an international geologic time scale for many years, and the charts in this book present the New Zealand geological timescale book up-to-date, international standard as ratified by the International Commission on Stratigraphy and the.

(ed.) The New Zealand Geological Timescale. Lower Hutt: Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences Limited. Institute of Geological & Nuclear Sciences monograph 22 p. Abstract: The geological timescale is the time framework by which we date, correlate and classify rock formations and geological events.

It provides the time framework for all studies of the history of the. This is a simplified version of the internationally-accepted time scale. Ages on the right (in millions of years) are based on radiometric dating. A much more detailed subdivision of the time scale has been undertaken in New Zealand, and a local version is used for dating rocks.

well s: 3. Modern New Zealand is world renown for being geological active with high mountains, frequent earthquakes, geothermally active areas and volcanoes. This is due to New Zealand's modern position on the boundary of the Australian and the Pacific Plates.

The collision of these plates caused the Pacific plate to subduct underneath the Australian plate which carries the North Island. A Concise Geologic Time Scale: presents a summary of Earth's history over the past billion years, as well as a brief overview of contemporaneous events on the Moon, Mars, and Venus.

The authors have been at the forefront of chronostratigraphic research and initiatives to create an international geologic time scale for many years, and the charts in this book present the most up-to-date. The Geological Survey of New Zealand now known as GNS Science has done extensive mapping through New Zealand atand scales.

An updated age calibration of the New Zealand Geological Timescale, NZGT /1, is presented. This incorporates local stage reassessments and recent international chronostratigraphic calibrations.
