Scientists Successfully Use Krypton to Accurately Date Ancient Antarctic Ice

Yesterday − Oregon State University
CORVALLIS, Ore. – A team of scientists has successfully identified the age of 120,000-year-old Antarctic ice using radiometric krypton dating – a new technique that may allow them to locate and date ice that is more than a million years old. …
