John McPhee, an eloquent writer on geology, coined the term 'Deep Time'

McPhee is a fine writer, and perhaps he deserves credit for coining this term. But it does remind me of J.R.R. Tolkien who (IIRC) reported that Elendil's sword Narsil was forged by the Elven smith Telchar "in the deeps of time".
