C-dating with the introduction of accelerator mass spectroscopy (AMS) which made possible the direct dating of prehistoric artworks painted or drawn with charcoal.

However, in the case of engravings and red paintings, only indirect methods can be used that allow us to date deposits that have covered the works over time (TL, U/Th, oxalates, etc.).

This will give us the precise measure of time that has elapsed since the disruption.

The basic principle of uranium – thorium series dating in corals is that uranium in oxygenated environments is about ten thousand times more soluble in seawater than thorium is.

Ages between 1000 and 300,000 years have been reported.

Uranium/Thorium dating of ferricretes from mid- to late Pleistocene glacial sediments, western Tasmania, Australia.

U-Th ages obtained by mass spectrometry in corals from Barbados: sea level during the past 130,000 years.

Many people think of coral as hard, rock-like formations that attract abundant, diverse marine life.

In fact, corals are themselves tiny marine animals called polyps that live together in large colonies.

Primordial lead is thought to have been formed by stellar nuclear reactions, released to space by supernovae explosions, and incorporated within the dust cloud that constituted the primordial solar system; the troilite (iron sulfide) phase of iron meteorites contains lead that approximates the primordial composition.

The lead incorporated within the of uranium and thorium isotopes.

If modern lead, for example, from marine sediments or modern basalts has the composition of lead in the Earth and if the lead in the troilite phase of iron meteorites has the composition of primordial lead, then a simple model yields about 4.6 billion years for the age of the Earth.

This age is in good agreement with the age of the meteorites and the age of the Moon as determined independently.

In thin layers of carbonate deposits and in damp media, the uranium incorporated into the calcite during its crystallization may be partially eliminated because of its solubility in water.

Uranium leaching causes an artificial increase of the age that may reach considerable proportions (e.g.

Coral polyps are relatives of jellyfish and anemones.

Some live in shallow water, some in deep; some form hard outer skeletons made of calcium carbonate, others have a soft body encasing hard internal structures known as sclerites.
