Short summary
Apatite helium thermochronology is a method that dates the time at which a rock (and the apatite crystals contained within) cooled below a certain temperature by measuring radioactive parent isotopes (uranium and thorium) and daughter isotopes (helium). This paper proposes a revision to a commonly used calculation that corrects raw data to account for instances when the analyzed apatite crystals are fragmented. It demonstrates the improved accuracy and precision of the proposed revision.
