  • Abstract Knowledge of the diffusion domain is of primary importance for age interpretation in noble gas thermochronometers. We have developed a Monte Carlo method to solve the diffusion equation in three-dimensional space and have used it to examine the effect of realistic crystal geometries and anisotropy on noble gas diffusion. The method is based on the simulation of Brownian motion with a modified distribution of collision distances and with a variable mean free path. This approach… CONTINUE READING
