Abstract

Samples of a Precambrian granite were melted in sealed capsules to produce a radiogenic Ar40 atmosphere over the melt. The amount of Ar40 incorporated in the quenched charge was then determined. Under these experimental conditions the amount of argon dissolved in the quenched melt was appreciable and could be an important source of error in potassiumargon dating. ?? 1969 Springer-Verlag.
