Dating Laboratories

In Heidelberg several laboratories use a variety of dating methods to determine the age of different environmental archives and systems, respectively. Depending on the applied methods and the investigated material the available methods cover time scales from days to billion of years. This unique dating competence opens wide fields of applications and make it possible to track various scientific questions in Earth and Environmental Sciences as well as cross-cutting disciplines.
