Rutile is an excellent lower-T complement to zircon U Pb data from the same dating nsf. Characterisation includes ID-TIMS and LA-ICP-MS U Pb dating, imaging, and trace element analysis.
We compare these materials with existing rutiles used already R19 and R10; Luvizotto et al. This makes possible a U Pb normalisation procedure not reliant upon a common Pb correction that results in a significant decrease in the uncertainty contribution from the common Pb correction and rutile dating reproducibility of reference materials and unknowns for provenance analysis and other applications. Since rutile ages reflect mainly the time of cooling, rutile is a sensitive recorder of metamorphic thermochronological information and therefore is an excellent complement to detrital zircon U Pb data.
