Border Cave revisited: a revised ESR chronology

Grun, Rainer; Beaumont, Peter

Description

In view of a decade of progress in ESR dating we have revised the ESR chronology of Border Cave. A detailed gamma ray survey in 1994 and newly calculated beta attenuation data led to total dose rate estimations that are between 0 and 30% smaller than previously estimated. Accordingly, the resulting ESR age estimates are between 0 and 30% older. The ESR dates are now in good agreement with independent age estimates, particularly 14C and amino acid racemization. New ESR dates for the lowermost...[Show more]
