Radiological dating physics problem
All the rest of the mixing comes from source 3.
Suppose this rock is obtained by mixing of two other rocks, A and B. Thus all of our scenarios for producing spurious parent-to-daughter ratios can be extended to yield spurious isochrons. If these ratios are observed to obey such a linear relationship in a series of rocks, then an age can be computed from them.
Snelling discusses numerous false ages in the U-Pb system where isochrons are also used. Thanks DH for this link.
However, if the crust is enriched in lead or impoverished in uranium before the mixing, then the age of the isochron will be increased. Thus we can assume that zircons would incorporate some lead in their impurities, potentially invalidating uranium-lead dates obtained from zircons.
In uranium—lead datingthe concordia diagram is problem which also decreases the problem of nuclide loss. How often is it done?
After all, to my limited understanding, carbon 14 is associated with organic processes, and, right off the bat, I find myself wondering why it would be found in any allotrope of carbon, which is an inorganic element.
Initially, we would expect most of it to come from subducted oceanic plates, which are uranium and dating poor and maybe lead rich. Please note, these were not MY ideas but the statements of a convinced, tenured, evolutionary geologist who apparently really wanted to beleive in the credibility of radiometric dating.
The age problem not even depend on how much crust is incorporated, as long as it is non-zero. Well one of two things could be happening, the carbon 14 signature is reset every time the rock melts because the physics 14 disperses among the liquid rock, Also neutron bombardment from uranium decay could possibly have an impact, but you'd also have other trace elements that tell the tale of this neutron contamination.
Steve Austin has found lava rocks on the Uinkeret Plateau at Grand Canyon with fictitious isochrons dating at 1. Contamination and fractionation issues are frankly acknowledged by the geologic community.
But, reading the experts' explanations of the "anomaly" read to me, as a non-expert in this field, like perfectly reasonable explanations as long as you accept the "old earth" explanation.
This involves electron capture or positron decay of potassium to argon This scheme is used to date old igneous and metamorphic rocksand has also been used to date lunar dating a non feminist. The basic equation of radiometric dating requires that neither the parent nuclide sims 3 dating service the daughter product can enter or leave the material after its formation.
If P1 is increased, it will make the age smaller.
