Scope of application Dating of sediment is used to calculate sedimentation rate and accumulation rates for different substances.
A number of studies have focused on the accumulation of heavy metals during the past 100 years.
The fixed ratio of lead-204 to the primordial amounts of the other lead isotopes may be used as the baseline to estimate the extra amounts of radiogenic lead present in rocks as a result of decay from uranium and thorium. The longest-lived radioisotopes are The relative abundances of the four stable isotopes are approximately 1.5%, 24%, 22%, and 52.5%, combining to give a standard atomic weight (abundance-weighted average of the stable isotopes) of 207.2(1).
Lead is the element with the heaviest stable isotope, Pb is entirely primordial, and is thus useful for estimating the fraction of the other lead isotopes in a given sample that are also primordial, since the relative fractions of the various primordial lead isotopes is constant everywhere.
