During the past 10–15 years, analytical innovations in geochronology have greatly enhanced the application of geochronological data to geological problems. The advances are mainly driven by developments in laser ablation inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (LA-ICPMS) which allows for rapid determination of U-Th-Pb ages of mineral grains in large sample sets. LA-ICPMS has now become the most common tool in the application of zircon geochronology to a host of different geological problems.
