Untitled[edit]

Yes, too technical, and jargon-filled, and written in the most obtuse style possible. This needs some serious edits - and the author has a tendancy to drop in and remove maintenance tags. Magichands 22:48, 20 March 2007 (UTC)

Needs to be broken into sections and have headings. RJFJR 20:34, 5 April 2007 (UTC)

I have tried to improve the article. I feel the context tag can now be removed. Does everyone agree? Please comment. I will try to improve the article further when i get the time. --Dhshah 18:19, 7 April 2007 (UTC)

changes[edit]

I originally wrote the article as an explanation to people involved in other dating methods, therefore with a science background . All statements are purposely general rather than specific, and hopefully unambiguous. No specific references are therefore included. Pictures would help but I have none. I added a list of web pages for further reading. I hope accessibility is not obtained at the cost of ambiguity. Bill B. Bill beauvais 20:52, 14 April 2007 (UTC)

Absolute or relative dating method?[edit]

I can find sources on either side. [1] says you can't use it for absolute dating. [2] says it's neither, but is a derivative method. [3] seems to describe it as an absolute dating method. And [4] again says it's a relative method. Doug Weller (talk) 18:48, 15 September 2008 (UTC)
