Relative Dating of Rock Layers

Trace- forms when the mud or sand hardens to stone where a footprint, trail, or burrow of an organism was left behind. This is a method that does not find the age in years but is an effective technique to compare the ages of two or more artifacts, rocks or even sites.

Radioactive Dating- this method measures the age of a material by comparing the amount of a radioactive substance with the amount of its decay product. When did earth s oxygen level reach today s level? Absolute dating is mostly based on isotopic measurements of certain radioactive trace elements and their decay products, not field relationships.
