... by Ernest Rutherford in 1906. The next fifty years witnessed the discovery of isotopes and nuclear fission; the development of the mass spectrograph and the mass spectrometer; application of the isotope dilution method to dating trace, accessory, and major minerals in typical crustal rocks; and publication...

.... The age of the Earth would have to wait just a little longer! By this time, the new field had expanded considerably ( F ig . 1 ). In a series of brilliant papers in 1902, Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy established that radioactivity resulted from the transformation of unstable elements into new...

... to the University of Toronto in 1927 I applied to transfer from a major in physics to one in geology. My professors were appalled. Physics was then in its heyday, but geology was held in very low esteem. Ernest Rutherford had compared it to postage-stamp collecting for it consisted of making maps by identifying...

.... The Curies determined that the new radiation was an atomic property and named the new phenomenon ‘radioactivity.’ In 1902 Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy published the results of experiments on thorium compounds that led them to propose that the activity of a substance is directly proportional...

... and sentiments – perhaps; a clarion call for palaeobiology in any curriculum – undoubtedly. The first chapter considers ‘Paleontology as a science’ and takes as its metaphorical call-to-arms that hoary old quotation from the cantankerous intellectual giant, Rutherford: ‘All science is either physics or stamp...

... discovery by Henri Becquerel in 1896 and the subsequent discovery of radium by Marie and Pierre Curie in 1898. By 1904 Ernest Rutherford had already suggested that the presence of radioactive minerals might provide a measure of the age of those minerals ( Rutherford 1905 ), and by 1905 Robert Strutt (later...

... for hundreds of millions, even billions, of years. Based on the accumulation of helium, a by-product of the decay process, in 1904 Ernest Rutherford ( Fig. 3 ) determined the very first radiometric date: a fergusonite mineral gave an age of 500 Ma. More than forty years after Kelvin’s pronouncement...

Thus Becker reviewed the prevailing arguments regarding the age of the Earth, siding, on the whole, with Kelvin and the physicists. Interestingly, Ernest Rutherford, then professor of physics at McGill...

... University in 1905, Rutherford expounded his theory that the accumulation of stable daughter products, Pb and He, in U-containing minerals could be used to measure geological time (Rutherford 1906 ). About this time, Rutherford walking in the campus with a small black rock in his hand, met the Professor...

... of the term ‘radioactivity’ in 1897. In that same year J. J. Thomson identified the electron and realized that the strange rays were in fact streams of electrons. By 1902 the transmutation of radioactive elements had been established by Ernest Rutherford and Frederick Soddy, and the release of helium...
