@fatin,
There are many "culture wars" issues involved with K/Ar and Ar/Ar dating, most of which have only to do with cross contamination. Rather than getting involved in arguments early in a thread, Im giving you a good paper on the entire K/Ar subject. It discusses several method controls and atmospherics. I dint know whether the site owner will let this through so, if it gets blocked just send me a PM and Ill send it as a pwersonal.

@fatin,
Im having trouble dissecting your linking of the PETM and K/Ar. Why are you doing this?
1I think you would spend some time in documenting your sources because several of your statements are actual lifts from the literature.
2Maybe youre way ahead of me here but I need to see some brief statement of your purpose (OVERALL purpose).
I dont mean to be technically critical but you need to make sure your intended readers are "on board" with some sort of abstract that summarizes the purpose and the findings and references to your sources as well.

Your syntax sounds a bit too ESL, is your language of study English?
