Non-biostratigraphic techniques of dating and correlation

January 01, 2016


This chapter covers non-biostratigraphic methods of dating and correlation that have been applied in NW Europe. Details of the principles, techniques and results of these methods are given in a number of publications and are not repeated here. Thorough up-to-date summaries of most are included in Gradstein et al. (2012, chapters 4-11 and, specifically for the Tertiary, chapters 28 and 29). Here their application to NW Europe is summarized; limitations and problems in their application are emphasized. The application of dating and correlation techniques to the North Atlantic Igneous Province is discussed in Chapter 7.
