No other volume has a similar scope, in terms of methods and applications and particularly time range.
Dating methods are used to determine the timing and rate of various processes, such as sedimentation terrestrial and marinetectonics, volcanism, geomorphological change, cooling rates, crystallization, fluid flow, glaciation, climate change and evolution. The volume includes applications in terrestrial and extraterrestrial settings, the burgeoning field of molecular-clock dating and topics in the intersection of earth sciences with forensics.
The content covers a broad range of techniques and applications. All major accepted dating techniques are included, as well as all major datable materials.
