Description

This book examines recent research into argon isotope ratios (40Ar/39Ar) which, in the last two decades, have allowed more precise measuring of both terrestrial and extraterrestrial rocks. The better understanding of the origin and evolution of the Earth owes much to this study. The authors provide an overview of the current literature and draw on their own work in the field.show more
