    • 2000 May 5, M. W. Martin et al., “Age of Neoproterozoic Bilatarian Body and Trace Fossils, White Sea, Russia: Implications for Metazoan Evolution”, in Science[1], volume 288, number 5467, DOI:10.1126/science.288.5467.841, pages 841-845:
      A linear regression through these 18 data sets yields an upper intercept age of 555.4 ± 1.6 Ma [mean squared weighted deviation (MSWD) = 0.10] and a lower intercept indistinguishable from 0 Ma, suggesting that normal discordancy is a function of recent Pb loss.
