Zircon U-Pb geochronology Virtual Thematic Issue

This thematic issue focuses predominantly on zircon reference materials for U-Pb and Pb/Pb geochronological applications. Analytical techniques include laser ablation (multicollector) ICP-MS, secondary ionisation mass spectrometry, laser fluorination, backscattered electron and cathodoluminescence imaging and electron probe microanalysis.
