Isotope Geology

Science / Geology / Isotope Geology: The study of the relative abundances of isotopes in rocks to determine their ages (see geo-chronology) or conditions of formation.

Radioisotope

Science / Biology / Radioisotope: Term applied to a radioactive isotope, such as carbon-14 or uranium 238. Radioisotope nuclei are unstable and spontaneously breakdown and emit one of a number of types of radiation. MORE

Medical Geology

Science / Geology / Medical Geology: The study of human health related to geology. Examples would include the correlation of disease or vitality with residences over specific types of bedrock or health problems associated with exposure t MORE

Isotopes

Science / Biology / Isotopes: Atoms with the same atomic number but different numbers of neutrons; indicated by adding the mass number to the elements name, e.g., carbon 12 or 12C. MORE
