History Of Earth
The history of Earth
Earth
concerns the development of planet Earth
Earth
from its formation to the present day.[1][2] Nearly all branches of natural science have contributed to understanding of the main events of Earth's past, characterized by constant geological change and biological evolution. The geological time scale (GTS), as defined by international convention,[3] depicts the large spans of time from the beginning of the Earth
Earth
to the present, and its divisions chronicle some definitive events of Earth

formed around 4.54 billion years ago, approximately one-third the age of the universe, by accretion from the solar nebula.[4][5][6] Volcanic outgassing probably created the primordial atmosphere and then the ocean, but the early atmosphere contained almost no oxygen

Ice Sheet

Olav Bjaaland
Olaf or Olav (/ˈoʊləf/, /ˈoʊlɑːf/, or British Ōleifr, Anleifr /ˈoʊlæf/; Old Norse: Áleifr, Ólafr) is a Scandinavian, German, and Dutch given name. It is presumably of Proto-Norse
Proto-Norse
origin, reconstructed as *Anu-laibaz, from anu "ancestor, grand-father" and laibaz "heirloom, descendant". Old English
Old English
forms are attested as Ǣlāf, Anlāf. The corresponding Old Novgorod dialect
Old Novgorod dialect
form is Uleb. A later English form of the name is Olave. In the Norwegian language, Olav and Olaf are equally common, but Olav is traditionally used when referring to Norwegian royalty. The Swedish form is Olov or Olof and was borrowed from Old Irish and Scots spelled Amlaíb and Amhlaoibh, giving rise to modern version Aulay (see also Mac Amhlaoibh and Mac Amhalghaidh (Irish septs))

Continental Drift
Continental drift
Continental drift
is the movement of the Earth's continents relative to each other, thus appearing to "drift" across the ocean bed.[2] The speculation that continents might have 'drifted' was first put forward by Abraham Ortelius
Abraham Ortelius
in 1596. The concept was independently and more fully developed by Alfred Wegener
Alfred Wegener
in 1912, but his theory was rejected by some for lack of a mechanism (though this was supplied later by Arthur Holmes)

Axis Of Rotation
Rotation
Rotation
around a fixed axis is a special case of rotational motion. The fixed axis hypothesis excludes the possibility of an axis changing its orientation, and cannot describe such phenomena as wobbling or precession. According to Euler's rotation theorem, simultaneous rotation along a number of stationary axes at the same time is impossible. If two rotations are forced at the same time, a new axis of rotation will appear. This article assumes that the rotation is also stable, such that no torque is required to keep it going. The kinematics and dynamics of rotation around a fixed axis of a rigid body are mathematically much simpler than those for free rotation of a rigid body; they are entirely analogous to those of linear motion along a single fixed direction, which is not true for free rotation of a rigid body

Geographic Coordinate
A geographic coordinate system is a coordinate system used in geography that enables every location on Earth to be specified by a set of numbers, letters or symbols.[n 1] The coordinates are often chosen such that one of the numbers represents a vertical position, and two or three of the numbers represent a horizontal position
