The migration of helium from the crystal lattices of sulfides pyrite, pyrrhotite, chalcopyrite, bornite, and sphalerite and sulfosalts tennantite and tetrahedrite was studied. It was shown that helium occurs in submicrometer inclusions of uranium- and thorium-bearing minerals. The curves of helium thermal desorption from the sulfide and sulfosalts were obtained by the step-heating method and analyzed on the basis of the single-jump migration model. The interpretation of these data led to the conclusion on the possibility of the U-Th-He dating of pyrite. It was shown that the migration parameters of helium in the other sulfides and sulfosalts are not suitable for their potential use as U-Th-He mineral geochronometer. Based on a comparison of data on helium migration in various minerals, it was suggested that high helium retentivity in some sulfides and arsenides pyrite and sperrylite is related to the type of their crystal lattice, packing density, and specific electric resistivity.

The helium isotope ratio is an important tracer of mantle-derived fluids. Different reservoirs in nature have distinct helium isotope signatures that.
Helium Isotopes and Noble Gases in Seawater
This package consists of global oceanic database of tritium and helium isotope measurements made by numerous researchers and laboratories over a period exceeding 60 years: from to in the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, Arctic Ocean, Mediterranean Sea, Baltic Sea, Black Sea. Tritium and helium isotope data provide key information on ocean circulation, ventilation, and mixing, as well as the rates of biogeochemical processes, and deep-ocean hydrothermal processes.
The dataset includes approximately 60, valid tritium measurements, 63, valid helium isotope determinations, 57, dissolved helium concentrations, and 34, dissolved neon concentrations. Some quality control has been applied in that questionable data have been flagged and clearly compromised data excluded entirely.
Following guidance from the White House, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and state and local public health authorities, we are.
Tritium 3 H, half-life of Tritium input to ground water has occurred in a series of spikes following periods of atmospheric testing of nuclear devices that began in and reached a maximum in Concentrations of 3 H in precipitation have decreased since the mids bomb peak, except for some small increases from French and Chinese tests in the late s. Radioactive decay of 3 H produces the noble gas helium-3 3 He. Tritium measurements alone can be used to locate the depth of the mids bomb peak, but, because of radioactive decay, many samples may need to be collected and analyzed today to locate its position.
In systems younger than the mids, the bomb peak will not be present due to radioactive decay. Although initial 3 H concentrations have decreased because of radioactive decay, measurements of 3 H and tritiogenic 3 He define a quasi-stable tracer of initial 3 H input to ground water and may be used to determine the position of the mids bomb peak in recharge areas.
We trap and probe atoms of rare isotopes, and explore related scientific problems in the realm of physics and beyond. We have demonstrated new laser trapping methods for the search of an atomic electric dipole moment EDM of radium setting a new limit that rapidly improved on our first measurement by a factor of Permanent EDMs in atoms and particles constitute a property forbidden by the fundamental symmetries of space and time.
Several conditions are necessary to permit solving the helium isotope mass balance for 3Hetri for ground-water samples: The sample must.
Enrichment in primordial helium 3 He has been detected in volcanic gases of numerous magmatic systems in different geodynamic settings. We show that the maximum enrichment in 3 He is found in magmatic fluids that fed the most voluminous eruptions which culminated in caldera collapse events.
The Reston Groundwater Dating Laboratory
Helium dating , method of age determination that depends on the production of helium during the decay of the radioactive isotopes uranium , uranium , and thorium Because of this decay, the helium content of any mineral or rock capable of retaining helium will increase during the lifetime of that mineral or rock, and the ratio of helium to its radioactive progenitors then becomes a measure of geologic time.
If the parent isotopes are measured, the helium dating method is referred to as uranium—thorium—helium dating; if only the alpha-particle emission and helium content are measured, the method is called the alpha-helium radioactive clock.

Neon, the second-lightest noble gas, has three stable isotopes and no long-lived radioactive isotopes. The stable isotopes, neon, neon, and neon, are present in a ratio of : 27 : in the atmosphere and in varying compositions in other materials. Neon is produced by both cosmic ray and nuclear processes in geologic materials. As a result, the neon system can provide a wealth of information about different processes. The proportion of the atmospheric component and these other components depends on the exposure and thermal histories of the material and on its chemical composition.
Cosmogenic neon comes primarily from spallation reactions caused by the interaction of cosmic radiation with elements heavier than neon. These reactions simply involve an energetic particle colliding with a heavy element and causing it to break into smaller pieces. These pieces are dominated by small particles such as protons, neutrons, and helium-3, but also include larger fragments such as neon isotopes.
A comprehensive global oceanic dataset of helium isotope and tritium measurements
Radiometric dating of rocks and minerals using naturally occurring, long-lived radioactive isotopes is troublesome for young-earth creationists because the techniques have provided overwhelming evidence of the antiquity of the earth and life. Some so-called creation scientists have attempted to show that radiometric dating does not work on theoretical grounds for example, Arndts and Overn ; Gill but such attempts invariably have fatal flaws see Dalrymple ; York and Dalrymple Other creationists have focused on instances in which radiometric dating seems to yield incorrect results.
In most instances, these efforts are flawed because the authors have misunderstood or misrepresented the data they attempt to analyze for example, Woodmorappe ; Morris HM ; Morris JD
Radioactivity: Some isotopes are unstable and will sooner or later break up into smaller pieces (radioactive decay). For instance, tritium will decay into Helium
The analysis of the thermal desorption of helium in the crystal lattice of native metals, including platinum, allowed us to predict a very high thermal stability retentivity of radiogenic 4 He in native platinum minerals up to their melting temperatures. In order to validate the proposed Pt- 4 He method, direct isotopic dating was performed for isoferroplatinum from the Galmoenan dunite-clinopyroxenite and Kondyor alkaline ultramafic massifs.
Our experimental data demonstrated that the Pt- 4 He method is a promising tool for dating native platinum minerals. This is a preview of subscription content, log in to check access.

You’ve got two decay products, lead and helium, and they’re giving two different ages for the zircon. For this reason, ICR research has long focused on the science behind these dating techniques. These observations give us confidence that radiometric dating is not trustworthy. Research has even identified precisely where radioisotope dating went wrong.

Along with presenting a new helium isotope dataset using phyric lavas largely from off-rift regions, we compiled published data and constructed a database of all available helium isotope data from Iceland. Modifications of primary i. The geographical information system ArcGIS ESRI was used to perform spatial analysis on the filtered database and the interpolation method, Natural Neighbor, was used to calculate representative helium isotope ratios for all parts of Iceland, including off-rift regions.
The results show that helium isotope ratios for the whole of Iceland vary from 5. However, this study allows for a fine-scale distinction to be made between individual rift segments and off-rift regions. Our isoscape map places new constraints on a previously inferred high-helium plateau region in central Iceland Breddam a al. Its location coincides with many geological features, e. Such high helium isotope ratios have been associated with undegassed and primordial mantle sources that have been isolated in the lower mantle over Earth’s history.
