Uranium-Lead dating is a radiometric dating method that uses the decay chain of uranium and lead to find the age of a rock. As uranium decays radioactively, it becomes different chemical elements until it stops at lead. The reason for stopping at lead is because lead is not radioactive and will not change into a different element. It may sound straight-forward, but there are many variables that have to be considered. The three main parameters that have to be set are the original amount of uranium and lead in the sample, the rate at which uranium and lead enter and leave the sample, and how much the rate of decay changes. Uranium-lead dating uses four different isotopes to find the age of the rock.

Zircon - Wikipedia

The mineral zircon adds three more fundamental advantages to uranium—lead dating. First, its crystal structure allows a small amount of tetravalent uranium to substitute for zirconium but excludes with great efficiency the incorporation of lead. It might be said that one begins with an empty box. Second, zircon, once formed, is highly resistant to change and has the highest blocking temperature ever observed. Finally, with few predictable exceptions, zircon grows or regrows only in liquid rock or in solid rock reheated to approach its melting point.

Zircon Chronology: Dating the Oldest Material on Earth

Of all the isotopic dating methods in use today, the uranium-lead method is the oldest and, when done carefully, the most reliable. Unlike any other method, uranium-lead has a natural cross-check built into it that shows when nature has tampered with the evidence. Uranium comes in two common isotopes with atomic weights of and we'll call them U and U. Both are unstable and radioactive, shedding nuclear particles in a cascade that doesn't stop until they become lead Pb.

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. Originally formed by crystallization from a magma or in metamorphic rocks, zircons are so durable and resistant to chemical attack that they rarely go away.
