Abstract

Geochronology is essential for understanding Neoproterozoic Earth history. Here we review the types of rocks and minerals that are used to date geologic events and the analytical protocols for the different radio-isotopic decay systems employed. We discuss the limitations and potential of these methodologies for dating Neoproterozoic stratigraphy, highlighting the major sources and magnitudes of uncertainties and the assumptions that often underpin them.
