The geologic time scale was used by geologists and other scientists to map the history of Earth. It was based on volcanic rock formations, fossil analysis, population growth, and climate and oceanic changes. Cataclysmic events such as continental drift, formation of polar ice caps, the mass extinction of dinosaurs and plants, and Ice Ages were all marked on the geologic time scale. (PROSE: Exodus Code)
