16th Young Geomorphologists Meeting

Three successful days of the 16th Young Geomorphologists Meeting are over and we, the board of the German Young Geomorphologists, are very proud about the excellent work presented by the young researchers with fruitful discussions during the poster session, talks and spotlight presentations. The field trip showed us geomorphological insights of the surrounding area and a final stop at the Rotenfels. Special highlights were the Friday night talk “Academic Paths & Experiences” with Prof. Dr. Wilfried Häberli and PD Dr.…

[EGU 2022] International Tracing Day – UniVienna – Sunday 22 May

Dear experts of sediment tracing, In addition to the tracing session that will be held during EGU on Monday 23 May in Vienna (in hybrid mode), together with Olivier Evrard (Univ. Paris-Saclay, in copy), we organise an additional International Tracing Day at the Univ. of Vienna on Sunday 22 May (just before EGU starts). After these long months of on-line activities, this will be the opportunity to discuss again in person about the challenges associated with sediment fingerprinting. (No hybrid…

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…
