Re: Radiocarbon Dating

Yes, the before mentioned bood "The Handy Science Answer Book" says the use
of elements are:

Uranium-238 ~half life=4.5 billion years

Uranium-235 ~half life=704 million years

Thorium-232 ~half life=14 billion years

Rubidium-87 ~half life=48.8 billion years

Potassium-40 ~half life=1.25 billion years

Samarium-147 ~half life=106 billion years

These are said to be used in dating techniques of gas formation light
emission (called thermoluminescence).

What are some other forms of dating?
