Relative dating - Wikipedia Relative dating is the science of determining the relative order of past events (i.e., the age of an object in comparison to another), without necessarily determining their absolute age, (i.e. estimated age). In geology, rock or superficial deposits, fossils and lithologies can be used to correlate one stratigraphic column with another.

DATING METHODS IN ARCHAEOLOGY - OoCities But, even when the scientific methods of absolute dating are available, this method of dating has not lost its importance, as many a time we have to depend solely on relative dating. Even when the absolute dates are available, we have to supplement the information with relative dating.

What is Relative Dating? - Law of Superposition. Geologists establish the age of rocks in two ways: numerical dating and relative dating. Numerical dating determines the actual ages of rocks through the study of radioactive decay.

10 Re: What is the importance of relative dating

Why are the fundamental principles used in relative dating. Relative dating by biostratigraphy is the preferred method in paleontology, and is in some respects more accurate (Stanley, 167–69). The Law of Superposition was the summary outcome of 'relative dating' as observed in geology from the 17th century to the early 20th century.
