He says it would have been a significant loss at the time for the hunter, but lucky for the caribou.Across walls, fences, and alleys, rats not only expose our boundaries of separation but make homes in them.We outline in this article the basic principles of fission-track (FT) dating, detail the different methods used for glass and zircon, describe the correction procedures for partial track fading in glasses, comment on the accuracy and precision of FT dates, and compare the results obtained to those of other dating methods, especially the JAW gratefully acknowledges the support of the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada, and BVA acknowledges the financial support from the New Zealand Foundation for Research Science and Technology (FRST contract C05X0202).NDN acknowledges support from the USGS National Cooperative Geologic Mapping Program.
