Question: What are radiometric techniques?

The technique of measurement of natural radiation in the earths surface is called “radiometric method” (also known as Gamma ray spectrometry). This is a process in which the unstable atom becomes stable in the process of its nucleus. Energy is released in the form of radiation, viz., alpha, beta, and gamma rays.

What are 2 radiometric methods?

Together with stratigraphic principles, radiometric dating methods are used in geochronology to establish the geologic time scale. Among the best-known techniques are radiocarbon dating, potassium–argon dating and uranium–lead dating.

How do you find radiometric age?

Thermal ionization mass spectrometer used in radiometric dating. To determine the ages in years of Earth materials and the timing of geologic events such as exhumation and subduction, geologists utilize the process of radiometric decay.
