Whom discovered radioactive dating

Austin simply assumes that the first explanation is correct and then he proceeds to use the 'presence' of 'excess argon' in his samples to question the reliability of all K-Ar dates on other rocks and minerals.

Generally, that means that 37 billion atoms in the sample are decaying and emitting a particle of nuclear radiation (such as an alpha particle) per second.

The validity of either hypothesis #2 or #3 would provide additional evidence that Austin's application of the K-Ar method is flawed and that he has failed to prove that the K-Ar method is universally invalid.

A British team reported finding markings in a layer of volcanic ash in a Mexican quarry that they interpreted as human footprints. Bennett, Silvia Gonzalez, David Huddart (2010) Techniques for verifying human footprints: reappraisal of pre-Clovis footprints in Central Mexico Quaternary Science Reviews, Volume 29, Issues 19-20, September 2010, Pages 2571-2578.

The rate of iodine-131 uptake, determined with a Geiger counter or other scanning device, indicates whether the thyroid glands are functioning properly.

Sodium chloride containing sodium-24, can be injected into the bloodstream to study blood circulation.

This makes food safer and also keeps it fresh longer.
