Summary
Abstract: The datasets contains the core number, depth (cm), and Ra-226 activity(dpm/g) and Ra-226 error (dpm/g).

The use of radioactive isotopes is founded on the known physical property of radioactive material, the half-life. A half-life of an isotope is the amount of time it takes for half of a given number of atoms to "decay" to another element. The age of objects that contain radioactive ... View entire text
