  • About the Edition

    A diverse range of organisms and rock formations have survived for many millennia, originating prior to the emergence of human life forms. These geological formations reveal much about Earth"s climate and the types of life forms that can endure certain environmental conditions. Using fossil records and geological evidence, this comprehensive series examines all aspects of prehistory, including the ascendancy of dinosaurs and the beginnings of humankind. Numerous photographs and illustrations invite the reader to understand the genesis of life as we know it.

For the most part, these fossils allow various forms of information from the rock succession to be viewed in terms of their relative position in the sequence. Uranium–thorium dating []. Uranium–thorium dating is based on the decay of U to Th.

Th is a primordial radioisotope, but Th only occurs as an intermediate decay product in the decay chain of U. Uranium–thorium dating is a relatively short-range process because of the short half-lives of U and Th relative to the age of the Earth: it is also.
