    Precambrian time covers the vast bulk of the Earth's history, starting with the planet's creation about billion years ago and ending with the emergence of complex, multicelled life-forms. Precambrian Research publishes studies on all aspects of the early stages of the composition, structure and evolution of the Earth and its planetary neighbours. With a focus on process-oriented and comparative studies, it covers, but is not restricted to, subjects such as: (1) Chemical, biological, biochemical and cosmochemical evolution; the origin of life; the evolution of the oceans and.

Three main methods are used in correlation of Precambrian strata—isotopic, paleontological, and geological. Different isotopic methods and their modifications are used for age determinations of the older formations.

In the Rocky Mountain region of the United States, Precambrian sedimentary rocks commonly outcrop in mountain ranges and their thickness indicates that they represent deposits from large, isolated basins that have uplifted.

The Late Precambrian rocks were deformed in the Avalonian orogeny; the Upper Carboniferous rocks were deformed during the polyphase Alleghanian-Variscan orogeny; and the Lower Paleozoic strata were mildly deformed at an as yet undetermined time between the above orogenic events, possibly during a Cadomian III orogenic by: 8.

Edited by Kent Condie, Elsevier's Developments in Precambrian Geology book series is designed to provide a comprehensive source of detailed information on all aspects of the Precambrian, including (1) chemical, biological, biochemical and cosmochemical evolution; (2) geochemistry and geochronology; (3) geophysical aspects of the early Earth; and (4) nature and evolution of the lithosphere.

Introduction. A single observation can fundamentally change the way we construct large parts of a discipline, and so it was with James Hall's observation that the Paleozoic rocks in a linear belt along the eastern coast of the United States were many times thicker than rocks of the same age in the Upper Mississippi by: The precambrian is a broad designation for the three eons of geologic time scale.

Knowledge is limited because: a. Precambrian rocks are generally buried beneath younger rocks. Precambrian-aged sedimentary rocks are scarce.

Sedimentary rocks that are Precambrian-aged are folded, faulted, and/or slightly metamorphosed.
