OSL dating of southeast Australian quartz: A preliminary assessment of luminescence characteristics and behaviour

Fitzsimmons, Kathryn; Rhodes, Edward; Barrows, Timothy


Australian quartz has been widely considered particularly suitable for OSL dating of sediments. We present the results of a preliminary investigation into the luminescence characteristics and behaviour of quartz from various regions and depositional contexts across southeastern Australia. In doing so, we find that quartz from this region is generally well suited to the SAR protocol, although individual sample behaviour should nevertheless be assessed to confirm this. Furthermore, luminescence...[Show more]
