    • 238U and 235U decay chains
    • Approaches, in studying magmatic timescales-constraints derived from each
    • Early dating of rock and mineral suites-by radioactive decay systems
    • Magmas, not always reaching surfaces directly
    • Mantle-derived magmas, crust-interacting with host rock
    • Radioactive disequilibrium-between U-series isotopes, during mantle melting
    • Timescales of magmatic processes
    • Turning point, in understanding dynamics of magmatic processes
    • U-series isotopes, fractionating during magmatic processes-tool for constraining timescales of magmatic processes
    • Uranium and thorium-series isotopes-composing decay chains
