Explain relative dating elementals dating directory
The results are often determined by the estimates of the presumed age of the strata based on relative ages.
The age determined by relative dating is based on the rules of super imposition and the presumed age of strata based on fossils.
The deeper strata is presumed to be older than strata above.
The strata with the simpler fossils is presumed to older than strata with more complex fossils regardless of which is above the other.
absolute dating is based on calculations of the age of rock strata based on half lives of minerals, relative dating is based on the assumed age of fossils found in the strata and the laws of super imposition. The absolute dating is based on calculation of half life.
( New Scientist Nov 10 1983 page 425 Both absolute dating and relative dating are determined by the evolutionary timeline and are used to support the evolutionary timeline.
( The rocks do not date the fossils the fossils date the rocks American Journal of Science Jan 1976 47-55) Absolute dating is based on radioactivity.
Absolute dating is expensive and takes time while relative dating is less-expensive and efficient.
Absolute dating is the technique that determines the exact age of a historical remaining while relative dating gives the order of age of several samples.
