Hot, steamy, with abundant rainfall, tropical in nature, perfect for plant and forest growth.

The geological time scale organizes a long period of time.

An era, in geologic terms, is a geological time period encompassing two or more geologic periods.

The geological time scale is the history of the earth. This is in the eras period and epochs.

from oldest to youngest the systems are Precambrien Cambrian Ordovician Silurian Devonian Carboniferous Permian Triassic Jurassic Cretaceous Palaeogene Neogene Quaternary

geological time period ranges between 443-418 ma refer to wikipedia (search with Geological time scale) if u want details about this and rest all the time periods

There is no definite length of a geological time scale, unless you wish to use some 13 billion years which the universe has existed for. The geological time scale tends to use the units of time: 109 (billion) years, and 106 (million) years. E.g. the Earth is 4.6 billion years old; the Carboniferous period was around 350 million years ago. The scale is greatly varied. If you were to plot all major events, you might consider making your scale logarithmic, especially if you were planning to put the appearance of Homo Sapiens (us) on the same scale as the formation of the Solar System.

A geological time scale can best be reconstructed using a wide variety of reference books and materials that lay out the chronological order of the geological scale.

The geological time scale is hugely larger than the human time scale. For humans, a decade is a significant period of time, and even our civilizations span only a few thousand years... whereas in geological terms even a million years isn't that much.

No. In the geological time-scale, periods are subdivided into epochs and so epochs are shorter lengths of time.

It covers the time period beginning with the formation of the Earth (4.567 billion years ago) to the present.

Four eons comprise Earth's geological time scale. Other time intervals of the Earth are eras, periods, and epochs.

In Geological Time Scale which is arrangement of earth's history on the time scale as Eons, Eras, Periods and Epochs to explain the past biotic and abiotic history of earth and life. Eons: is the LARGEST unit of Geological Time Scale differentiated on the basis of life present or absent. Eras: is the SECOND LARGEST unit of Geological Time Scale that is differentiated of the basis of geological changes that earth has undergone.

The macro scale climate control refers to various measures that are put in a large scale to control the climate. The measures might be to conserve the climate and prevent it from further degradation.

The geological time scale was used by professions such as scientists. Scientists use this to record important life events and life forms. These are very important to humans.

By eons, eras, epochs, and periods.

Not in the loch itselfbut reading the question to mean "Loch Doon area", there may be as there is Carboniferous Limestone in the region, but I recall no references to caves there. The only geological mapI could find was very small-scale generalised one, and didn't even show Loch Doon!

The geological time scale is the geologic history of the planet from formation to the present. It starts with large divisions of time called eons and is subdivided into successively smaller units of time based on dominant lifeforms, extinction events, even climate.

The geological time scale is divided into: Eons (Such as the Proterozoic and the Phanerozoic) THEN Eras (Such as the Mesozoic and the Cenozoic) THEN Periods (Such as the Cretaceous and the Quaternary) THEN Series, alternatively Epoch (Such as the Pleistocene and the Holocene) THEN Stage (Such as the Campanian and the Tarantian)

ok im going to start off by saying this, the last answerer is stupid, and doesnt know what he is talking about. it goes from: PERIOD ERA EPOCH there you go ;)
