The narrower a range of time that an animal lived, the better it is as an index of a specific time.

No bones about it, fossils are important age markers.

absolute vs relative dating techniques-26

Relative dating is a method of dating fossils or archaeological objects according to the stratigraphical layer in which they are found.

To tell it simply, fossils and archaeological objects are supposed to have the same age as the sediment in which they are embedded.

It’s based either on fossils which are recognized to represent a particular interval of time, or on radioactive decay of specific isotopes. Based on the Rule of Superposition, certain organisms clearly lived before others, during certain geologic times.

After all, a dinosaur wouldn’t be caught dead next to a trilobite.

Here is an easy-to understand analogy for your students: relative age dating is like saying that your grandfather is older than you.

Absolute age dating is like saying you are 15 years old and your grandfather is 77 years old.

In a way this field, called geochronology, is some of the purest detective work earth scientists do.

There are two basic approaches: relative age dating, and absolute age dating.

This was roughly the dating method used by scientists in the early days of palaeontology and archaeology, before the emergence of absolute radiometric dating methods (radiocarbon, potassium-argon, thermoluminescence, OSL, etc.)The relative dating method is still helpful, since basically it gives reasonably good results.

And not every fossil or archaeological object can be dated, since radiometric dating methods are mostly rather costly, and the financial means of most research teams are limited.

Relative age dating also means paying attention to crosscutting relationships.


  1. , here are my 2 cents : "Conservative" Middle eastern chics are easier to bang, Why ? because they face the dichotomy of strict upbringing at home and friends having wild fun, which they want to be a part of. You can bang them as long as no one knows about it, they have to still cover their head with Hijab and potect their rep in the community. It would be much better if you are not in touch with there community. Find girls in Schools, Colleges, etc with Palestenian, Iraqi, Persian, Syrian roots and yes a Happy medium between FOB and Born and raised here works the best..... These conservative chics are the Nyc has a lot of middle easterns. She had to hide me from pretty much everyone, including her family, it was a turn on for both of us... I'm sure some rich dude will buy her into marriage anyway though...she's hot as fuck and literally had jewelry and flowers sent to her all the time with offers of marriage from other familys. Moreso I've noticed that those born here versus those that came from the motherland, the immigrant girls are far quicker to put out. It probably has something to do with the fact that those immigrant girls are far from their relatives' eyes and are less inhibitted by social pressure.
