Quick Reference

Common lead (Pb) removed at a particular time from a single, constantly evolving, uranium–thorium–lead environment. It can be used to provide the basis for the common-lead method of dating (see lead–lead dating). After the removal of this lead in solution and its deposition as a lead ore (such as galena), it is then assumed not to have been altered in isotopic composition by the further addition of radiogenic products.
