The authors carefully review the subjects covered in current historical geology courses and have tailored each stand-alone assignment to offer a clear, straightforward examination of pertinent topics. The content of this classroom-tested laboratory manual has been expanded and enhanced to include exercises on the Precambrian history of the Canadian Shield as well as an understanding of the stratigraphic, structural, and depositional history of North America during the Phanerozoic Eon.
