Abstract. A robust statistics approach to isochron calculations is presented, accompanied by an implementation in Python. It allows isochrons to be calculated for a wider range of datasets than the standard classical statistics approach, assuming that the distribution of uncertainties on the data is slightly fatter-tailed than Gaussian. The robust approach advocated reduces to the classical approach for "good'" datasets.
