Geochronology is the conceptual division of continuous time as measured (geochronometry) by the progression in an ordinal series of events. This is best achieved by an approach which integrates four independent data sets: magnetostratigraphy, seafloor spreading magnetic lineation patterns, biostratigraphy, and isotopic ages. This integrated approach results in an ordinal framework which can measure time with greater resolution, though perhaps less accuracy, than a radiometric approach alone. A… CONTINUE READING
