The age dating strategy depends on the type of formation magmatic, metamorphic or sedimentary , the sample composition and the age of formation. The concentration of the mother and daughter isotopes, as well as the apparent age can be determined with high precision. In many cases, however, the determined age may not be the real age of the geological event. The apparent age may be affected by the post-depositional or post-formation history of the rocks. Natural contamination of chemical sediments with detrital material can also affect the results of dating of diagenesis. Advice concerning dating strategies and interpretation of data is provided as required.

GSA Bulletin ; : — The Wufeng and Longmaxi organic-rich shales host the largest shale gas plays in China. The fractures hosted in the Longmaxi Formation are mineralized with quartz as the predominant fracture cement, and calcite as an intracementation phase postdating the earlier quartz cement. In contrast, the fractures hosted in the Wufeng Formation are dominantly mineralized by calcite, which occurs either as the only cement present or as a cement phase predating later quartz cement.
REE data equally indicate that the distinguishable Eu anomalies 6. The Sm-Nd isochron ages and fluid inclusion data of fracture cements suggest that fracture opening and calcite precipitation in composite veins within the Wufeng and Longmaxi Formations were triggered by gas generation overpressurization.

All publications more feeds DOI: BibTeX file. The Sm-Nd isotope systematics of a single large garnet crystal have been analyzed, applying both standard and leaching separation techniques. The sample containing the garnet is a coarse-grained pegmatite from the Campo basement unit northern Italy , part of the Austroalpine realm. This reflects strong REE fractionation in the pegmatite garnet, which, together with the inclusion-free nature of the crystal, points to the high suitability of such garnets for Sm-Nd dating.
The core and the rim fraction of the magmatic garnet give Sm-Nd ages of These ages are interpreted to reflect the time of magmatic crystallization of the garnet. The corresponding Nd t value of An unleached garnet separate and three leachates deviate slightly, but systematically from the K-feldspar-garnet Sm-Nd isochron, due to the presence of secondary metamorphic minerals fine-grained white mica and chlorite.
Coarse-grained white mica and K-feldspar from the same sample yield a Rb-Sr date of The results emphasize the presence of a Permian pegmatite-forming event in the Campo basement unit. The crustal-derived pegmatites were subsequently affected by Alpine metamorphism and polyphase deformation. Show menu Hide menu.

Manuscript received November 3, ; accepted for publication on November 9, ; contributed by M. Nd isotopes represent one of the best tools to investigate the processes involved in the evolution of the continental crust and mantle. This is due mainly to the similar geochemical behaviour of Sm and Nd, both light rare earth elements, which inhibits their fractionation during most varied geological processes. The Sm-Nd separation methodology is basically that described in Richard et al.
The Sm-Nd geochronometer is based on the decay of Sm to Nd, with the emission of an particle. The equation below describes the Sm-Nd isotopic evolution for any geological system:. Thermal Ionisation Mass Spectrometry TIMS is the most commonly used technique for the determination of isotopic ratios and also for the determination of REEs concentrations by isotope dilution.
The isotopic analysis is the mass spectrometer is preceded by chemical treatment, involving the addition of a spike solution, dissolution of the sample and the chemical extraction of Sm and Nd by ion exchange. The extraction of Sm and Nd are accomplished in two stages. The first stage consists of the bulk separation of lanthanide fraction and in the second stage, the elements are separated from each other in order to avoid isobaric interference and also the presence of elements that make the ion beam unstable or that interfere with the ionisation efficiency of Sm and Nd.
This work reports an efficient method of micro-extraction used for Sm and Nd separation, based on the method employed by Richard et al. Precise and accurate determination of isotopic ratios of metals cannot be achieved if they have not been efficiently separated from other interfering elements. If traces of elements of the matrix are present in the aliquot to be analyzed, isobaric interference can happen Potts

Lu—Hf and Sm—Nd dating of metamorphic garnet: evidence for multiple accretion events during the Caledonian orogeny in Scotland. T1 – Lu—Hf and Sm—Nd dating of metamorphic garnet: evidence for multiple accretion events during the Caledonian orogeny in Scotland. N2 – Caledonian orogenesis in Scotland is currently interpreted in terms of a Mid-Ordovician arc—continent collision Grampian event followed by the Silurian collision of Laurentia with Baltica Scandian event.
Lu—Hf and Sm—Nd garnet ages of c. Lu—Hf and Sm—Nd ages of c. The existing two-stage Grampian—Scandian model for Caledonian orogenesis in northern Scotland is thus an oversimplification, and the new ages imply a more complex structural evolution. The restriction of the Late Ordovician and Silurian events to the Northern Highland terrane reinforces the suggestion that it was far removed from the Grampian terrane until juxtaposition following major end-Caledonian Devonian sinistral displacement along the Great Glen Fault.
A similar record of Mid- and Late Ordovician metamorphic events within the Laurentian-derived Uppermost Allochthons of Norway has been attributed to episodic accretion significantly prior to Silurian continent—continent collision and closure of the Iapetus Ocean.

Age –dating these samples by Sm-Nd and Rb-Sr methods is very challenging because they have been strongly shocked and contain very low abundances of light rare earth elements Sm and Nd , Rb and Sr. In addition, terrestrial contaminants which are commonly present in desert meteorites will compromise the equilibrium of isotopic systems.
