*****Remember to always label the time scale that you are using when answering these questions below. A time scale label example is thousands of years ago, days old, minutes old, billions of years ago,**etc . ***

3.) 3.) Geologic Time Scale Practice: [Total Points = 5, 1 point per question]

a.) What is the age label for the geologic time scale we are using (refer to the far right column)? This is what MYA stands for.

b.) The numerical age range of the Mesozoic Era

c.

d.) What is the name of the Era that covers the time age range from 66 million years ago to the present?

e.) What is the oldest numerical age listed on this time scale? Give the number.

4.) 4.) Our made-up

5.) 5.) What is the numerical age range of the Holocene Epoch? [Total Points = 2]

6.) 6.) What is the main element that the tree is made of? This is one element

7.) 7.) Now that you know what numerical age range the log is from, and what material the log is made of – take these two pieces of information to decide on one type of numerical dating technique that would work to date the log. REMEMBER: Be specific – don’t just say radiometric dating – because there are many types of radiometric dating methods – pick one covered in the book. [Total Points = 2]

8.) 8.) Give two reasons why you chose the numerical dating technique that you did in question 7 for the log. [Total Points = 4, 2 points per reason]

9.) 9.) What is the numerical age range of the Permian Period? [Total Points = 2]

Dating Techniques for a Tree Log

Trees usually add an additional ring to their trunks every other year. As such, the simplest

method of determining the numerical age of trees is by counting their rings one by one. The

approach is called dendrochronology and can play a pivotal role in making it possible for daters

to establish the exact time when recent geological events occurred, such as mudflows and

landslides. It is especially useful in situations when the trees have started fresh growth on new

surfaces. The numerical dating technique that would be most befitting for the current case is

absolute dating. It would pave the way for the determination of the age of the tree log buried in

the Holocene flood (Tarbuck,...
