Radiometric Dating and the Geological Time Scale Groups of zones were used to establish larger intervals of stratigraphy, known as geologic 'stages' and geologic 'systems'. The time corresponding to most of these intervals of rock became known as geologic 'ages' and 'periods', respectively.. Radiometric Dating: Calibrating the Relative Time Scale.

How do geologists date rocks? Radiometric dating! - USGS Radiometric dating has been used to determine the ages of the Earth, Moon, meteorites, ages of fossils, including early man, timing of glaciations, ages of mineral deposits, recurrence rates of earthquakes and volcanic eruptions, the history of reversals of Earth's magnetic field, and many of other geological events and processes.

5 Re: Radiometric dating systems

Radiometric dating - Wikipedia Radiometric dating or radioactive dating is a technique used to date materials such as rocks or carbon, in which trace radioactive impurities were selectively incorporated when they were formed. The method compares the abundance of a naturally occurring radioactive isotope within the material to the abundance of its decay products, which form.
