This book presents the most recent research on the 40Ar/39Ar method of radioactive dating of rocks. The focus is on applying the method to geological studies, with an emphasis on the interpretation of results. The technique has enjoyed considerable success in dating extraterrestrial materials, and more recently has been successfully applied to problems related to the thermal history of the earth.

About the Author:

For many years Mark Harrison has been the chair of, and a writer for, a variety of UCLES exam papers including FCE, CAE, CPE, BEC and IELTS. He is also the author and co-author of a wide range of practice test books.

Review:

"This is a very good book. Despite its modest size, it gives thorough coverage to the various aspects of 40AR/39Ar dating and reflects the authors' considerable expertise in the subject. It contains answers and information for the expert as well as the uninitiated. The book is also
well-written and nicely produced, with a practical but pleasing design and a readable type on decent stock. It is an essential addition to the bookshelf of anyone who works in the field of 40Ar/39Ar dating, utilizes 40Ar/39Ar data in their research, or has occasion to rely on, or even refer to, the
40Ar/39Ar literature. If your work includes the Earth, Moon, or meteorites, then I suggest you keep a copy close at hand. You will not regret it." --Geochimica et Cosmochimica Acta
