Absolute dating is the process of determining an age on a specified chronology in archaeology and geology. Some scientists prefer the terms chronometric or calendar dating , as use of the word "absolute" implies an unwarranted certainty of accuracy. [1] [2] Absolute dating provides a numerical age or range in contrast with relative dating which places events in order without any measure of the age between events.

In historical geology , the primary methods of absolute dating involve using the radioactive decay of elements trapped in rocks or minerals, including isotope systems from very young (radiocarbon dating with 14
C ) to systems such as uranium-lead dating that allow acquisition of absolute ages for some of the oldest rocks on earth.

One of the most widely used and well-known absolute dating techniques is carbon-14 (or radiocarbon ) dating, which is used to date organic remains. This is a radiometric technique since it is based on radioactive decay. Cosmic radiation entering the earth’s atmosphere produces carbon-14, and plants take in carbon-14 as they fix carbon dioxide. Carbon-14 moves up the food chain as animals eat plants and as predators eat other animals. With death, the uptake of carbon-14 stops.

Young life creationists, or baraminologists as they prefer to be called, have experienced a paradigm shift over the past three decades. Initially, creationists made a point of identifying every possible characteristic of an organism as the result of special, unique creation. This, however, has changed; they are now increasingly embracing…

It was while working in the Kent Laboratory building in the 1940s that Prof. Willard Libby and his UChicago associates developed radiocarbon dating—an innovative method to measure the age of organic materials. Scientists soon used the technique on materials ranging from the dung of a giant sloth from a Nevada cave; seaweed and algae from Monte Verde, Chile, the oldest archaeological site in the Western Hemisphere; the Shroud of Turin; and the meteorite that created the Henbury Craters in.

Oh no it"s not Susanna and why it would be ? I have a fav animal too which is close to yours: Tiger

Radiocarbon is the main international journal of record for research articles and date lists relevant to 14C and other radioisotopes and techniques used in archaeological, geophysical, oceanographic, and related dating. The journal is published quarterly. We also publish conference proceedings and monographs on topics related to our fields of interest.  ISSN:  0033-8222As of 2016, Radiocarbon will be published by Cambridge University Press. Please check the Cambridge Online site for new Radiocarbon content and submit manuscripts through the new platform.

The School of Archaeology regrets to announce that Martin Aitken has died in his home in France, aged 95. He was a physicist who dedicated his time to research in the scientific aspects of archaeology.  Much of his career (from 1957 – 1989) was spent in the Research Laboratory for Archaeology and the History of Art at Oxford, where he was Director. 

What a special night celebrating my favourite animal, volunteers and some pretty cool people! Such a fantastic charity

There"s this app which the characters have animal ears and tails!!! It looks so cute, I want to try it out!! ( ✧ᴥ✧ʋ )

And I’m the main animal person meaning I take care of them all

I could totally survive on a few beers and a handful of animal crackers every night, but Husband insists I eat real food.
