The dataset contains U-Pb radiometric ages of zircon grains from sedimentary rocks and modern river sands from the Caucasus region of western Asia. The data were collected as part of a research project investigating the effects of continental collision in the Caucasus region on regional erosion and sedimentary systems. The data are presented using the standard quantities reported for zircon U-Pb age analyses at the University of Arizona Laserchron Center.
