Fluvio-mechanical resetting of the Al and Ti centres in quartz

Liu, Chun-Ru; Grun, Rainer


ESR dating of fluvial terraces is usually based on the assumption of sunlight resetting of the Al centres in quartz. Very long bleaching times (months of sunlight exposure) are required to reset this centre to a stable, non-zero ESR intensity. Considering that highly light sensitive optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) analyses of fluvial samples often indicate partial bleaching, ESR dating should be extremely difficult. Two samples were analysed, a fluvial sediment from a Chinese river...[Show more]
