Precambrian, period of time extending from about billion years ago (the point at which Earth began to form) to the beginning of the Cambrian Period, million years Precambrian encompasses the Archean and Proterozoic eons, which are formal geologic intervals that lasted from 4 billion to about million years ago, and the Hadean Eon, which is an informal interval spanning from.

The Early to Middle Cambrian Carrara Formation includes two partial third-order sequences and three complete third-order sequences. The first partial sequence, composed of the basal two Carrara Formation members, is completed by the addition of the underlying Early Cambrian Zabriskie Quartzite.

The map below shows in detail where the important boundary is between the Precambrian rocks (PC: of the Canadian Shield) and the Paleozoic-age sedimentary rocks of the Michigan Basin and surrounding areas (C: for Cambrian).

Source: Unknown As soon as water fell on the Canadian Shield and the first winds blew, rock weathering began.

Cambrian Period - Cambrian Period - The Cambrian environment: The geography of the Cambrian world differed greatly from that of the present day.

The geographic reconstruction is based on integrated geologic and biological evidence. Fossils in continental-shelf deposits indicate the presence of at least three major faunal provinces (or biogeographical regions) during much of the Cambrian Period.

Paleontology and geology. Little is known of the Early Precambrian history of Nevada, as few rocks of this age are preserved. In the Late Precambrian, shallow seas began to flood onto the edge of a quiet continental margin, one where no tectonic activity was occurring.

The land was a flat plain with no mountains, and rivers deposited quartz-rich sandstones at the river mouths and nearshore areas.
