U series dating problems

A pioneering investigation into the crystallization of magma was carried out by N. If minerals that crystallize at the top of a magma chamber and fall, tend to incorporate a lot of uranium, this will tend to deplete uranium at the top of the magma chamber, and make the magma there look older.

In many instances the melt which has migrated from the initial magma chamber will undergo further segregation. So one could argue that any variations in Pb ratios would have to result from radioactive decay.

If there is significant convection in the magma, this would be minimized, however. I now show that the mixing of three sources can produce an isochron that could not be detected by the mixing test. For example, zircons are thought to accept little lead but much uranium. The magnesium and iron rich minerals come from the mantle subducted oceanic plates , while granite comes from continental sediments crustal rock. How big is a vicinity?

      When the remaining melt crystallizes, either in place or in a new location if it migrates out of the chamber, it will form a rock with a chemical composition much different from the original magma Figure 3. This could influence radiometric dates.

      If rock X has lots of uranium and little daughter product, and rock Y has little uranium and lots of lead daughter product relative to non-radiogenic lead , then one will get a negative slope. Chemical fractionation, as we have seen, calls radiometric dates into question.
