Luminescence Dating in the Natural Sciences
Luminescence Dating in the Natural Sciences covers the exponential number of applications and significant advances in methodology that have come to light since the early 2000s. It addition, it presents other aspects of the topic, including luminescence physics, its solid-state phenomenology, and theoretical and applied dosimetry. This book bridges the divide between users and practitioners of luminescence dating by reaching a large community of users in geology, geomorphology and archaeology. It will appeal to students, faculty members and private industry researchers, providing a brief discussion of the basic principles of luminescence dating.
These principles will be further illustrated through case studies that examine both the potential and the limitations of luminescence dating.
- Covers basic physics and solid-state background principles
- Features case studies that illuminate both the potential and limitations of luminescence dating
- Includes instructions for recently developed technical tools, statistical packages, and field and laboratory protocols
