Geological records indicate that the hyper-aridity in the Atacama Desert has prevailed since at least the mid-Miocene, with shorter periods of increased humidity punctuating long-term aridity. While 10 Be surface exposure ages point to long-term surface stability of the flat upslope surface, a combination of humidity-driven soil creep, overland flow and soil creep related to seismic shaking, caused denudation of the hillslope and accumulation of several metres of colluvium over much shorter timescales during the last ka. A robust chronology for the hillslope sediments has been established by using Infrared Stimulated luminescence pIR-IR protocol on K-feldspar extracts from nine samples collected within the accumulation. A series of tests has been carried out to confirm the suitability of the method. The estimated ages indicate accelerated sedimentation at 35—80 ka, and — ka, which are interpreted as periods with more humid climate conditions than present. These findings agree with climate variations in the hyper-arid Atacama indicated by the activity of coastal alluvial fans and river catchments.

Luminescence dating of a gigantic palaeolandslide in the Gobi-Altay mountains, Mongolia
Luminescence dating refers to a group of methods of determining how long ago mineral grains were last exposed to sunlight or sufficient heating. It is useful to geologists and archaeologists who want to know when such an event occurred. It uses various methods to stimulate and measure luminescence. All sediments and soils contain trace amounts of radioactive isotopes of elements such as potassium , uranium , thorium , and rubidium. These slowly decay over time and the ionizing radiation they produce is absorbed by mineral grains in the sediments such as quartz and potassium feldspar.
of radiocarbon dating in this high‐rainfall region. Therefore, we tested the ability of thermoluminescence (TL) and infrared‐stimulated luminescence (IRSL) to.
Over the last 60 years, luminescence dating has developed into a robust chronometer for applications in earth sciences and archaeology. The technique is particularly useful for dating materials ranging in age from a few decades to around ,—, years. In this chapter, following a brief outline of the historical development of the dating method, basic principles behind the technique are discussed. This is followed by a look at measurement equipment that is employed in determining age and its operation.
Luminescence properties of minerals used in dating are then examined after which procedures used in age calculation are looked at. Sample collection methods are also reviewed, as well as types of materials that can be dated. Continuing refinements in both methodology and equipment promise to yield luminescence chronologies with improved accuracy and extended dating range in the future and these are briefly discussed. Luminescence – An Outlook on the Phenomena and their Applications.
Luminescence dating refers to age-dating methods that employ the phenomenon of luminescence to determine the amount of time that has elapsed since the occurrence of a given event. In this chapter, the application of luminescence techniques in dating geological and archaeological events is examined. Generally, the term luminescence dating is a collective reference to numerical age-dating methods that include thermoluminescence TL and optically stimulated luminescence OSL dating techniques.
Other terms used to describe OSL include optical dating [ 1 ] and photon-stimulated luminescence dating or photoluminescence dating [ 2 ]. Luminescence dating methods are based on the ability of some dielectric and semiconducting materials to absorb and store energy from environmental ionizing radiation. In earth sciences and archaeological applications, the dielectric materials are usually minerals such as feldspar and quartz.
Luminescence dating is a geochronological technique that spans the Late Quaternary. It is particularly useful for minerogenic sediments, for example as optically stimulated luminescence OSL dating of quartz and infrared stimulated luminescence IRSL dating of feldspar. Thermoluminescence TL dating can also be used to determine the age of pottery. The Lund Luminescence Laboratory was established in , as the first of its kind in Sweden. In the adjoining rooms mechanical and chemical preparation of samples can be carried out under darkroom conditions.

This article describes the principles of optical dating—an umbrella term for a family of related techniques based on the storage of radiation energy in light-sensitive traps in natural minerals—and its application to rock art. Only a few studies have used OSL or IRSL dating to constrain the age of rock paintings and engravings, and these applications can be grouped under two broad headings: dating of associated sediments and dating of rock surfaces.
These studies are briefly reviewed in this chapter, together with some comments on future directions and challenges for OSL and IRSL dating of rock art. Access to the complete content on Oxford Handbooks Online requires a subscription or purchase.

This erratum provides corrected Table 3 , Fig. Residual dose was D e after artificial sunlight bleaching for 3 h except for modern beach sand gsj which was bleached for h. Fading correction was performed based on Kars et al. To calculate the uncorrected ages, residual dose of modern beach sand gsjH was subtracted from D e of each sample. D o values were calculated based on Wintle and Murray Fading test results. The error bars show one standard error.

Knowledge of the age of fluvial deposits is an important aspect in the understanding of river dynamics, which is pre-requisite for sustainable river management and restoration back to more natural conditions and processes. Presented here is a case study on using feldspar Infrared Stimulated Luminescence IRSL to date low-energy fluvial sediments that formed after correction of the Upper Rhine River in the first half of the 19 th century.
A rigorous testing programme is carried out to characterise the IRSL properties of the samples, including thermal transfer, dose recovery and fading. All samples reveal complex distributions of equivalent dose, implying the presence of differential bleach-ing in the samples. It is shown that multi-grain aliquots overestimate the known-age by up-to years, i. The use of single grains results in ages that are in excellent agreement with the expected age, therefore the age overestimation in multi-grain aliquot measurements is likely explained by signal averaging effects.

The polymineral fine grain fraction of a set of ten known age samples were used to test the suitability of elevated temperature post-IR infrared stimulated luminescence pIRIR to date waterlain sediments in Switzerland. For the younger half of the samples, fading corrected ages for all protocols resulted in overestimation compared to robust independent dating for all samples, and draw into question the relationship of fading measured in a laboratory generated signal to that which is naturally generated.
These overestimations may largely be due to the significant residual doses resulting from the harder to bleach nature of the elevated temperature signal, and present a considerable problem when dating waterlain sediments. A considerable challenge when using the pIRIR signal is to be able to separate the effects of both residual doses and fading and confirm that one is not masking the other. Despite this, the pIRIR protocols were successful at one site, although they offered no benefit compared to dating with more conventional luminescence signals.
Published in Quaternary Geochronology in April, Terrace correlation was based upon: a analysis of aerial photographs, geomorphological mapping and field topographic survey; b sedimentology of the deposits; and c luminescence dating. Sediment sampled for luminescence dating gave unusually high dose rates, of between 3. The K-feldspar age results support sometimes complex geomorphic correlations, as fluvial terraces have been vertically displaced by faults known from previous studies. Integration of these new ages with those obtained previously in the more upstream reaches of the Tejo River in Portugal indicates that the corrected K-feldspar IRSL ages are stratigraphically and geomorphologically consistent over a distance of km along the Tejo valley.
Luminescence dating results suggest that: T3 is older than ka, probably ca.
