It will serve as the most comprehensive treatise on widely accepted dating methods in the earth sciences and related fields.Discovering an ancient artefact, mineral or fossil is only half the job in geological sciences, biology and archaeology.Dating this find and finding out where it fits in the geological time scale makes up the second half and is crucial for understanding its significance in the context of earth’s history.Over 100,000 scientists and researchers contribute the content that makes up the Springer Nature reference program.The Geoscience Information Society is a member society of the American Geosciences Institute (AGI) and an associated society of the Geological Society of America (GSA).Springer Nature was formed in 2015 through the merger of Nature Publishing Group, Palgrave Macmillan, Macmillan Education and Springer Science Business Media.
