The contribution of geochronology to understanding the paleozoic geological history of Australia

Williams, Ian; Pulford, Anna

Description

From the viewpoint of isotope geochronology, studies of the Paleozoic geological history of Australia can be divided into three main eras: (i) the era of stratigraphy, when the ages of igneous and metamorphic events were inferred primarily from stratigraphic relationships; (ii) the era of K-Ar and Rb-Sr, when the broad time frame of many of the main thermal events was mapped out; and (iii) the era of SHRIMP, when U-Pb microanalysis, in combination with techniques such as Ar-Ar, Sm-Nd and Lu-Hf,...[Show more]
