Definitions

  1. Geochronology is a special branch of geochemistry using isotope physics to determine the time of formation of rocks, of minerals, and of fossils.
  2. Geochronology is the science of determining the age of rocks, fossils, and sediments.
  3. Geochronology is the study of determining the age of rocks, while paleontology is the study of fossils. (Web site)
  4. Geochronology is the science of finding out how old rocks and minerals are.
