This book presents the most recent research on the 40Ar/39Ar method of radioactive dating of rocks. The focus is on applying the method to geological studies, with an emphasis on the interpretation of results. The technique has enjoyed considerable success in dating extraterrestrial materials, and more recently has been successfully applied to problems related to the thermal history of the earth.
