Uranium and thorium decay series disequilibria in young

article osti_5470609 title = Uranium and thorium decay series disequilibria in young volcanic rocks author = Williams R W abstractNote = Two of the central questions in igneous geochemistry that study of radioactive disequilibria can help to answer are what are the rates of magma genesis and what are the timescales of magma separation and transport...

Caving In to New Chronologies Science

nbsp 0183 32 Speleothem climate records can be dated by measuring the growth of thorium-230 from the radioactive decay of uranium yielding climate chronologies for the past 400 000 years at unprecedented precision When and how can other climate records be correlated...

nbsp 0183 32 This combination has a superior conversion ratio in a thermal neutron spectrum than low-enrichment uranium more thorium is bred to uranium-233 than uranium-238 is bred to plutonium-239 The uranium-233 generated in the Indian Point reactor is later processed into a tetrafluoride and used to fuel the Molten-Salt Reactor Experiment...

Olowalu chronology and geochemistry time

Chronology and time-series geochemistry data of a coral core collected from Olowalu West Maui Hawaii The chronology is based on density banding radiocarbon bomb-curve and uranium thorium dating techniques The geochemistry time-series data contains...

Uranium series dating of speleothems

nbsp 0183 32 Radioactive decay of Uranium and Thorium isotopes at constant rates provides a tool to determine the age of speleothems with high precision and accuracy As with any dating method a fundamental prerequisite is the lack of post-depositional alteration that is no gain or loss of isotopes within the decay chain of interest...

Measurement of Uranium Decay Rates to Advance Nuclear

Schematic overview of a thorium-234 in-growth experiment as an independent high-precision measurement of the uranium-238 decay constant Six aliquots of highly enriched uranium-238 are chemically purified to establish t 0 and assayed with high precision before decaying for...

Nuclear cosmochronology

In the studies described in this paper we make quantitative use of the radio-active decays of uranium and thorium in cosmochronology in much the same manner as these decays have been employed in geochronology The paper is divided into two quite different...

Thermochronology

Thermochronology is the study of the thermal evolution of a region of a planet Thermochronologists use radiometric dating along with the closure temperatures that represent the temperature of the mineral being studied at the time given by the date recorded to understand the thermal history of a specific rock mineral or geologic unit...

The extreme diversity of uranium deposits SpringerLink

Most available classifications of uranium deposits are based on the characteristics of the host rocks or on the morphology of the ore deposits The aim of the present paper is to propose the basis for a genetic classification of these deposits After a short introduction on the geochemical behavior of uranium in fluids and silicate melts and on the main uranium fractionation mechanisms...
