Great essay on dating by Joe

January 9, 2011

Here’s an essay on dating of rocks that I found – and guess what, it’s by Joe! It’s on a website put up by Joe and a friend which touches on many things palaeontological – take a look, but I really recommend this particular essay to you as it ties together many of the things we studied in dating.  There is an exceptionally clear and concise explanation of radiometric dating nearly at the end which you should study.  It could easily be your model answer to an exam question asking you to explain radiometric dating (but to be on the safe side, add an example of a mother/daughter pair such as K40/Ar40 and a sketched exponential decay graph).
