Write a paragraph summary of the best applications of numerical dating techniques for a tree log buried in a Holocene flood and a Permian felsic volcanic unit. Refer to your textbook reading
Please use the worksheet questions below in place of writing a one page paper for this assignment
3.) 3.) Geologic Time Scale Practice: [Total Points = 5, 1 point per question]
a.) What is the age label for the geologic time scale we are using (refer to the far right column)? This is what MYA stands for.
b.) The numerical age range of the Mesozoic Era
d.) What is the name of the Era that covers the time age range from 66 million years ago to the present?
e.) What is the oldest numerical age listed on this time scale? Give the number.
4.) 4.) Our made-up
5.) 5.) What is the numerical age range of the Holocene Epoch? [Total Points = 2]
6.) 6.) What is the main element that the tree is made of? This is one element
7.) 7.) Now that you know what numerical age range the log is from, and what material the log is made of – take these two pieces of information to decide on one type of numerical dating technique that would work to date the log. REMEMBER: Be specific – don’t just say radiometric dating – because there are many types of radiometric dating methods – pick one covered in the book. [Total Points = 2]
8.) 8.) Give two reasons why you chose the numerical dating technique that you did in question 7 for the log. [Total Points = 4, 2 points per reason]
9.) 9.) What is the numerical age range of the Permian Period? [Total Points = 2]
1313.) Please provide your APA formatted reference list for the work done
1414.) Include source
