U th he dating of apatite a potential thermochronometry article on teacher and student dating issues
The paper presents data on persistent tendencies and relations in the migration of noble gases in U-bearing minerals of various composition: uraninite, pitchblende, metamict zircon, khlopinite, samarskite, betafite, and ampangabeite from various regions worldwide.The escape curves of all noble gases (starting with radiogenic He, Kr, and Xe and ending with nucleogenic Ar) during annealing in the laboratory are demonstrated to include three or four extrema, which suggest a change (increase or decrease) in the escape of rare gases at certain temperatures.According to literature data, such zones are nanometer-sized.For each of the detected extrema, which correspond to the discrete energy settings of Xe atoms in the structure, migration parameters are calculated: the activation energy and frequency factor, which are proved to be strongly correlated.The most recently developed dating technique applied to phosphates, described in this chapter, uses the accumulation of α particles from U and Th series decay, (U-Th)/He dating.
The paper presents a technique for studying the escape of noble gases from minerals.
(1987), who studied the diffusion rate of He from apatite and proposed that apatite He dating might provide a useful thermochronometer, recording cooling through about 100°C. 1997, Farley 2000) and in the natural setting (House et al. 2000) have confirmed this idea, and the technique has now been applied to a range of tectonic, geologic and geomorphologic problems (e.g., House et al.
Further studies both in the laboratory (Lippolt et al.
