Uranium-thorium-lead datingalso called Common-lead Datingmethod of establishing the time of origin of a rock by means of the amount of common lead it contains; common lead is any lead from a rock or mineral that contains a large amount of lead and a small amount of the radioactive progenitors of lead—i. The important characteristic of common lead is that it contains no significant proportion of radiogenic lead accumulated since the time that the mineral or rock phase was formed. Of the four isotopes of lead, two are formed from the uranium isotopes and one is formed from the thorium isotope; only lead is not known to have any long-lived radioactive progenitor.

As each dating method was developed, tested, and improved, mainly sincea vast body of knowledge about the behaviour of different isotopic systems under different geologic conditions has evolved. It is now clear that with recent advances the uranium—lead method is superior…. In uranium-lead dating, minerals virtually free of initial lead can be isolated and corrections made for the trivial amounts present.

The discovery of the radioactive properties of uranium in by Henri Becquerel subsequently revolutionized the way scientists measured the age of artifacts and supported the theory that the earth was considerably older than what some scientists believed. There are several methods of determining the actual or relative age of the earth's crust: examination of fossil remains of plants and animals, relating the magnetic field of ancient days to the current magnetic field of the earth, and examination of artifacts from past civilizations. However, one of the most widely used and accepted method is radioactive dating.

As uranium dating method, slowly decays radioactively, the natural radioactive dating. The uranium-lead is a radioactive dating uranium-lead dating uranium-lead dating, the uranium-lead method that uses the world to accurately date objects far older. For the decay of the limitations of uranium exists as uranium to understand this is so reliable.

Uranium—lead datingabbreviated U—Pb datingis one of the oldest [1] and most refined of the radiometric dating schemes. It can be used to date rocks that formed and crystallised from about 1 million years to over 4. The method is usually applied to zircon.

Both isotopes are the starting points for complex decay series that eventually produce stable isotopes of lead. Uranium-lead dating was applied initially to uranium minerals, e. The amount of radiogenic lead from all these methods must be distinguished from naturally occurring lead, and this is calculated by using the ratio with Pb, which is a stable isotope of the element then, after correcting for original lead, if the mineral has remained in a closed system, the U: Pb and U: Pb ages should agree.

What are the oldest rocks on Earth, and how did they form? The material that holds the greatest insight into these fundamental questions, because it can contain a record of some of the earliest history of the Earth, is a mineral named zircon. For example, a few grains of zircon found in the early s in a sandstone from western Australia dates back 4. Geology professors Darrell Henry of Louisiana State University and Paul Mueller of the University of Florida are expert practitioners of several techniques that can extract precise age information from zircons.
