nice piece of history and geology. I often think there is a false dichotomy between what we perceive as geological time and our time. geological processes occur on the scale of seconds, minutes, weeks, centuries. the problem is one of preservation and resolution, we usually end up seeing a time averaged sample.

but examples like these I think should make us aware that geological time is also our time.
