HOW DOES THE STUDY OF HISTORICAL GEOLOGY BENEFIT US?
The following content objectives are presented in Chapter 1:
- Earth is a complex, dynamic planet that has continually evolved since its origin some 4.6 billion years ago.
- Earth can be viewed as an integrated system of interconnected components that interact and affect one another in various ways.
- Theories are based on the scientific method and can be tested by observation and/or experiment.
- The universe is thought to have originated approximately 14 billion years ago with a Big Bang, and the solar system and planets evolved from a turbulent, rotating cloud of material surrounding the embryonic Sun.
- Earth consists of three concentric layers—core, mantle, and crust—and this orderly division resulted during Earth’s early history.
- Plate tectonics is the unifying theory of geology, and it revolutionized the science.
- The theory of organic evolution provides the conceptual framework for understanding the evolution of Earth’s fauna and flora.
- Appreciation of geologic time and the principle of uniformitarianism are central to understanding the evolution of Earth and its biota.
- Geology is an integral part of our lives.
To exhibit mastery of this chapter, students should be able to demonstrate comprehension of the following:
- the vastness of Earth history and deep time
- the interactions of Earth systems
- the differences between physical geology and historical geology
- the scientific method and the basis of scientific theories
- the Big Bang model of the origin of the universe
- the evolution of the universe
- the general characteristics of our solar system
- the solar nebula theory for the formation of our solar system
- the characteristics that make Earth a dynamic and evolving planet
- the compositional and physical layers of Earth
- the impact of the theory of plate tectonics on the study of the Earth
- the basic concept of organic evolution, including the primary evidence and mechanisms
- the principle of uniformitarianism, and the derivation and significance of the geologic time scale
