Radioactive dating techniques to isotopes
When these minerals occur as inclusions in certain other minerals, most notably the mica family, they are often seen to develop discoloration, or "pleochroic" haloes.
The haloes are caused by radiation damage to the host mineral's crystalline structure.
Farmers in Brazil Use Legumes to Reduce Costs, Greenhouse Gas Emissions.
Brazilian farmers are working with nuclear scientists to utilize organic farming techniques to increase their productivity while at the same time reducing their carbon emissions in a project coordinated by the IAEA in cooperation with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO).
Both types of igneous rocks comprise a mixture of different minerals.
As igneous rocks cool, mineral crystals form following a specific sequence.
Gentry has spent most of his professional life studying the nature of very small discoloration features in mica and other minerals, and concluded that they are proof of a young Earth.
Geologists classify rocks into three main categories - sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic - based on the way in which they form.
Igneous rocks form from molten material, and are further subdivided into two main categories, the volcanic rocks which form from lava extruded at or near the surface; and plutonic rocks which form from magma, deep within the crust.
