Difference between absolute and relative dating fossils Sex dating no upgrade
Suppose you find a fossil at one place that cannot be dated using absolute methods.Some fossils, called index fossils, are particularly useful in correlating rocks.
explain the difference between relative and absolute age dating and describe how the two methods would be used to complete one another in a case where a lava flow that can be dated using radioactive decay methods is both overlain and underlain by sediments with fossils The difference between absolute age and relative age is that; Absolute age: is the EXACT (or absolute) age of an animal, fossil, person, etc. Relative age: is the RELATION of the age comparing to something else, not the exact age. Example: Fossil is anywhere from 5,000 to 8,000 years old.
As far as describing the method with the lava and whatever, I don't know how to answer the second party, really.
