Radiometric Dating and the Geological Time Scale Figure 2. How relative dating of events and radiometric (numeric) dates are combined to produce a calibrated geological time scale. In this example, the data demonstrates that 'fossil B time' was somewhere between 151 and 140 million years ago, and that 'fossil A time' is older than 151 million years ago.
