1 year would mean 0.082 cm per year (WAY too small)

10 years would mean 0.82 cm per 10 years (A little less than a cm per year)

100 years would mean 8.2 cm per 100 years

I would go with 50 year gaps so that you get 4.1 cm per section of 50 years (make exceptions to this as well, I mean if nothing significant happens for 100 years, then why would you add it, right?)
