Question details

To the Mesozoic Era

To the Mesozoic Era

Now, let’s keep going. This time the goal will be to travel back to the beginning of the Neogene Period, just before the Quaternary Period. Use your GTS to determine how many km to travel to reach where the Neogene Period begins, which is also where the Miocene Epoch begins. Continue tracing your route point-to-point, and try to stay as close as possible to the road. Use a map scale bar resolution of 500 m to 1 km, but no larger or smaller.

Question 5 (1 point)

How many km did you travel in total from the GGB to reach the start of the Neogene Period? Round to two significant digits.

Now zoom out to a scale bar of 5 km and look at the road so far. Your path of points won’t look exactly like this but it should be fairly similar:

Next stop: the beginning of the Paleogene Period, which also begins the Cenozoic Era in which we continue to live today. At that time-point the Mesozoic Era ended, and along with it the Cretaceous Period, about 70% of biodiversity on Earth, and all dinosaurs but a few birds. Extend your distance trace along the route until you reach the end of the Mesozoic Era.

Question 9 (1 point)

The Mesozoic Era extends back through the Cretaceous, Jurassic & Triassic Periods to 252 mya. Continue your trip through these periods along your route, stopping at the beginnings of the Cretaceous, Jurassic and Triassic Periods. For this leg of the trip, use a 5 km scale bar.

How many km did you travel in total from the GGB to reach the beginning of the Cretaceous Period? Round to three (3) significant digits.
