Question: Where can we apply the absolute dating method?

Absolute dating techniques include radiocarbon dating of wood or bones, potassium-argon dating, and trapped-charge dating methods such as thermoluminescence dating of glazed ceramics. C) to systems such as uranium–lead dating that allow determination of absolute ages for some of the oldest rocks on Earth.

What can absolute dating be used for?

Absolute dating methods determine how much time has passed since rocks formed by measuring the radioactive decay of isotopes or the effects of radiation on the crystal structure of minerals. Paleomagnetism measures the ancient orientation of the Earths magnetic field to help determine the age of rocks.
