Nr. 75 - The POSTZOIC
The Anthropocene is usually described as a geological epoch, following the Holocene, which itself followed the Pleistocene, etc.. These epochs are part of the geological era: the Cenozoic, which started 66 Mio years ago, and which was preceded by the Mesozoic, etc.. Geological eras are separated by natural cataclysms that lasted thousands of years and that changed profoundly the geology of the Earth.Epochs and eras, swell as other time references like eons and periods, are defined by the International Commission on Stratigraphy, and laid down in the International Chronostratigrphy Chart. The present version of this chart, v2017/02, still ends with the Holocene.
