4 - Age of The Earth: The Victorians

From The E=mc2 Lectures, 9:10 am on 22 May 2005

Dr Hamish Campbell, Geological and Nuclear Sciences/Te Papa, discusses a number of exciting earth science research projects: the age of New Zealand's oldest rocks, the origin of New Zealand's oldest sedimentary rocks, the age of the New Zealand land surface, the age of the Chatham Islands, the characterisation of New Zealand nephrite (pounamu) on the basis of age, and not least, the age of the Earth itself.
