Pa/U ages from a Single Fossil Coral Fragment by Multi-collector Magnetic-sector Inductively Coupled Plasma Mass Spectrometry


The Th/U/U age dating of corals via alpha counting or mass spectrometry has significantly contributed to our understanding of sea level, radiocarbon calibration, rates of ocean and climate change, and timing of El Nino, among many applications. Age dating of corals by mass spectrometry is remarkably precise, but many samples exposed to freshwater yield… (More)
