Glauconite is abundant in many Palaeogene rocks and its contained potassium can be used for radiometric dating. The methodology of this dating is described and sources of error and uncertainty are examined. Age determinations are presented on thirty-seven rocks mostly from NW Europe and these are discussed in relation to previous dating work. Ages are assigned to the boundaries of the Palaeocene, Eocene and Oligocene at 65, 52, 33 and 23 Ma respectively. Des progrés rècents dans la connaissance… Expand
