Description: The fourth website, developed by Professor Stephen A. Nelson at Tulane University, provides a detailed mathematical explanation of the principles of radiometric dating. The site is divided into sections which include: Principles of Radiometric Dating; The Rb/Sr System; The U, Th, Pb System; and The Age of the Earth. Other dating methods are covered briefly as well, such as potassium argon (K-Ar) dating and carbon-14. Professor Nelson concludes with a description of other users of isotopes.
