<quoted text>There are quite a number of methods, many of which depend on various concentrations of the radioactive decay products or so-called "daughter" atoms, that appear as the larger atoms decay.

A classic is Uranium 238 (the most common isotope), which has a half-life of 4.468 billion years-- very convenient.

The fact that it is that long, means that there will be naturally occurring U238 left in the Earth's crust-- fortunate for paleoscience.

But scientists have studied U238 extensively, and they know what the most common daughter products are, and have mapped the most likely breakdown sequence, from when the U238 atom first splits, and the final, more-or-less stable isotope (usually lead). Radium is in the chain, as I recall.

So by measuring what is trapped in the rocks, in the form of various break-down (decay) products, scientists can estimate the time the rock solidified from a liquid. Obviously, it would be an igneous rock here. It would be presumed that during the molten state, the lighter isotopes would have boiled off and escaped-- this being confirmed by sampling modern examples of molten rock, near currently active volcanoes.

So, as soon as the rock hardens, the clock starts ticking-- as the U238 decays, it's daughter atoms begin to accumulate in a predictable pattern.

Measuring the ratios of the various decay products to each other, and knowing their half-lives? You can calculate when the rock was last at a liquid state.

The math is pretty complicated--and beyond my meager skills, but it's possible to do, since none of the daughter atoms have the same 1/2 life, the ratios will change over time. Knowing the current ratios in the rock? You can then calculate backwards to the beginning.

This is but one method. There's others.

For example, Continental drift-- using complicated satellite positioning, scientists have calculated the actual rate of separation between Africa and South America. Assuming an average speed similar to modern observations (that is the rate has not changed significantly since it started) you can easily calculate how far back in time the continents were together. Identical fossils dating to before that period can be found on either continent. Fossils dating after that period are different on each continent. So you have a Time Stamp marker from which to test your other calculations.
I prefer the birthday candles method.
