Pb 210 dating laboratory beth riesgraf dating 2016
The result of the dating is delivered in the form of a report stating the age of the sediment, the rate of sedimentation, the mixing depth and the mixing intensity.In addition, the results of the sensitivity analysis are reported.
The 210Pb dating may be supplemented with dating of the caesium 137Cs isotope.
Sediment studies may also be supplemented with determinations of e.g. Method Decay of uranium in the earth's crust releases the gas radon.
This gas produces 210Pb by decay in the atmosphere.
Applications are in the areas of Late Quaternary geochronology, sedimentology and biochronology.
Please discuss your proposal with the appropriate ANSTO Contact Scientist before submitting your proposal as they will assist you in making the correct capability selection.
The lead isotope enters the earth’s crust or the water through precipitation.
