Dating quaternary events by luminescence

We found that quartz in our sampling area is dim and has poor OSL characteristics, therefore, no ages are calculated based on quartz OSL.On the other hand, K-rich feldspar infrared stimulated luminescence (IRSL) was bright with good characteristics.This introductory textbook introduces the basics of dating, therange of techniques available and the strengths and limitations ofeach of the principal methods.Coverage includes: the concept of time in Quaternary Science and relatedfields the history of dating from lithostratigraphy andbiostratigraphy the development and application of radiometric methods different methods in dating: radiometric dating, incrementaldating, relative dating and age equivalence Presented in a clear and straightforward manner with the minimumof technical detail, this text is a great introduction for bothstudents and practitioners in the Earth, Environmental and Archaeological Sciences.The calculated minimum slip rate along the Mission Creek fault in Indio Hills area based on the depositional age of sample MC1805 (~75 ka) is 7.0 ± 1.3 to 8.4 ± 1.4 mm/yr.This rate is smaller than the 12.2 to 21.7 mm/yr slip rate along the this fault at Biskra Palms (Behr et al., 2010).
