rubidium strontium dating
rubidium strontium datingMeasurements of Rb87, Sr88, and Sr87/Sr88 are reported for total‐rock samples of three shale formations. These data allow calculation of the time of deposition. The study of the rubidium/strontium isotopic ratios in a set of meteorite samples shows the general approach to this kind of radioactive dating. The isotope 87Rb. Rubidium-strontium dating. Written By: Rubidium-strontium dating, method of estimating the age of rocks, minerals, and meteorites from measurements of the amount of the stable isotope strontium formed by the decay of the unstable isotope rubidium that was present in the rock at the time of its formation. Rubidium-Strontium dating: The nuclide rubidium decays, with a half life of billion years, to strontium Strontium is a stable element; it does not.
