By the mid 19th century it was obvious that Earth was much older than years, but how old? This problem attracted the attention of capable scholars but ultimately depended on serendipitous discoveries. Initially, three lines of evidence were pursued: Hutton attempted to estimate age based on the application of observed rates of sedimentation to the known thickness of the sedimentary rock column, achieving an approximation of 36 million years. This invoked three assumptions: Constant rates of sedimentation over time Thickness of newly deposited sediments similar to that of resulting sedimentary rocks There are no gaps or missing intervals in the rock record. In fact, each of these is a source of concern.Read More

Accelerator radiocarbon dating of art, textiles, and artifacts. Accelerator mass spectrometry allows present-day scientists to look into the past by radiocarbon dating of relics such as cloth, artwork, and ancient writings. Accelerator mass spectrometry AMS is a technique for direct measurement of the concentration of radioisotopes. Its primary use is for radiocarbon dating of small samples of carbon, although many measurements have also been made on the longer-lived radionuclides such as 26 Al, 10 Be, 36 Cl, and I, which have applications to geology and marine studies. About one carbon nucleus in a trillion contains two extra neutrons, giving a mass of This carbon is radioactive and decays with a half-life of years.Read More
