Resolving the Holocene alluvial record in southeastern Australia using luminescence and radiocarbon techniques

Cheetham, Michael D; Keene, Annabelle; Erskine, Wayne D.; Bush, Richard Thomas; Fitzsimmons, Kathryn; Jacobsen, Geraldine; Fallon, Stewart


A previous assessment of radiocarbon (14C) dates from alluvial units in southeastern Australia revealed a gap in the geochronological record that coincides with the Holocene climatic optimum. This gap in the alluvial record can be further refined using optically stimulated luminescence (OSL). The chronology of Holocene river terraces on Widden Brook, a sandy alluvial stream in southeastern Australia, was established using 14C and OSL techniques. Combined use of these independent techniques...[Show more]
