Our Book on Canada's Geoheritage
The culmination of work done by more than 100 geoscientists, Four Billion Years and Counting and its French language translation Quatre milliards d'années d'histoire are the only books covering the geology of all of Canada that are available in both English and French. This book will take you on an epic journey of discovery, revealing how Canada’s rocks, fossils, and landscapes have evolved over time.
An ever-shifting drama featuring the building and dismantling of continents and the opening and closing of oceans, the story highlights the basic concepts about rocks, plate tectonics, geological time, and fossils, using Canadian examples. Learn about how these topics are foundations for economic and social issues–such as water, energy and mineral resources, landslides, the environment, and climate change–that impact our lives every day.
