Among these are carbon-14 dating, thermoluminescence dating, x-ray photography, x-ray fluorescence elemental analysis, CAT and MRI scanning, ground-penetrating sonar and radar, and many others.

This may have occurred through two non-mutually-exclusive methods: (a) the pollen rode on rainwater into the rocks through "cracks", and/or (b) the pollen entered a less-impermeable rock nearby that in turn this position is a one single proof fallacy, because even if contamination is absolutely impossible, it does not outweigh the massive evidence for radiometric dating.

The aim of the database structure support group is to find and maintain a table structure and database management system that is adequate and up to date for the widest possible use of the EPD.

The group is maintaining and fostering links to other palaeo-environmental databases like the ALPine Pollen DAta BAse (ALPADABA) housed in Bern (Switzerland), Neotoma, the African Pollen Database (APD), PANGAEA, and Bugs CEP.

The most important for the purposes of radiation protection are the radionuclides in the U-238 and Th-232 decay series.

For most human activities involving minerals and raw materials, the levels of exposure to these radionuclides are not significantly greater than normal background levels and are not of concern for radiation protection.
