In this article, we will examine the methods by which scientists use radioactivity to determine the age of objects, most notably carbon-14 dating.The results from this sample are an excellent example of the advantages of Ar methods of dating have been successfully applied to many fundamental Earth science problems, including the establishment and calibration of the Geomagnetic Polarity Time Scale (GPTS), calibration of the Paleontological Time Scale (PTS), calibration of Hominid evolution, and numerous tectonic studies. The recent development of small volume low-background noble gas extraction systems and low-background high-sensitivity mass spectrometers have improved our ability to more accurately and precisely date geologic events.
