Short course @Uni Innsbruck: From photons to aeons – optical dating in earth sciences and archaeology, 15-19 June 2020

Luminescence dating is an important tool for studying the Quaternary. Classical luminescence dating dates when a grain of sand was last exposed to sunlight and subsequently buried, enabling researchers to address many questions in areas of Earth and environmental sciences as well as archaeological contexts. Additionally, the versatility of the luminescence signal allows for novel questions to be addressed – from soil mixing rates to geological uplift rates to sediment provinancing to dating of geological and archaeological rock surfaces. This…

Handbook of Luminescence Dating

A handbook for all geoscientists and archaeologists, who are interested in luminescence dating. It provides useful guidance on interpreting luminescence ages and using them in chronological frameworks, with a focus on various geomorphological contexts. It explains what luminescence can and can’t do, what and where to sample, types of measurements available and how to interpret and analyse ages once they are measured. It is accordingly for scientists who require luminescence ages for their research rather than those scientists developing the…
