Such a situation can be utilized in two different ways as a dating tool, called, respectively, the ‘daughter-excess’ and ‘daughter-deficiency’ dating methods. In the daughter-excess method, a deposit is formed with an excess of the daughter beyond the level that can be sustained by the abundance of its parent nuclide. Over time, the excess or ‘unsupported’ daughter decays back until secular equilibrium with its parent is restored. , 210Pb dating; see ‘210Pb and Multi-isotope Sediment Dating’). In the daughter-deficiency method, chemical fractionation during the formation of a deposit causes it to take up a radioactive parent but effectively none of its daughter.
