2D modelling: A Monte Carlo approach for assessing heterogeneous beta dose rates in luminescence and ESR dating: Paper II, application to igneous rocks

Fang, Fang; Martin, Loic; Williams, Ian; Brink, Frank; Mercier, Norbert; Grun, Rainer


Accurate evaluations of beta dose rates are crucial in luminescence and electron spin resonance (ESR) thermochronology. Most igneous rocks are heterogeneous and have complex mineralogical structures that render them unsuitable for the conventional methods of beta dose rate calculations based on infinite matrix assumptions. The recently developed software DosiVox-2D provides a Monte-Carlo approach for calculating beta dose rates in realistic heterogeneous geometries. In this paper, we present 2D...[Show more]
