It excludes contamination and weathering of travertines and makes possible more precise dating of thin deposits of secondary carbonates. The effort to explain the results involves hypothetical second and third events which reset some of the radiometric clocks at different times in the past.

This point alone totally invalidates uranium and thorium dating methods!

Here of some of the well-tested methods of dating used in the study of early humans: Climate and Human Evolution. Climate Effects on Human Evolution;.

This error may exceed the measured value when dealing with younger uranium minerals containing even small amounts of original lead, as clearly recognized by Holmes when the method was first proposed.

It can also date meteorite impact craters, earthquake-generated fault gouge material, contact heating and metamorphism of sediments baked by lava overflows, and anthropogenically heated materials such as ceramics, cooking hearths,and deliberately fire-treated rocks such as flints used by prehistoric people for toolmaking.

Only those are used which bear some similarity to one another.

The real world would have greatly altered these theoretical decay time spans. During the rest of the year, the river is slower, and carries finer material. Some techniques can even estimate the age of the ancient teeth and bones directly.

See the chapter, Paleomagnetic Dating. Second, there would be major radioactive rate-changing activities atmospheric, radiative, and magnetic changes would tend to reset the clocks directly.
