Abstract

The accuracy of uranium-series dating was studied quantitatively using the natural long-lived decay chains 4n+2 and 4n+3. An unusually well-bounded matrix diffusion case was used as the reference for USD simulations. The simulations applied the traditional closed and open system models, as well as detailed multistage models that incorporated the known accumulation history of the decay chain members. The results show clearly the improved accuracy and consistency in dating with detailed mass flow information.
