Optical dating of river terrace sediments from Kanto plains, Japan

Tanaka, K; Hataya, R; Spooner, Nigel; Questiaux, D


Optical dating of river terrace sediments has been carried out in a test of the methodology for luminescence age determination of river terrace formation over the last 100 ka. In this study, samples were collected at river terraces, whose ages were estimated by marker tephra geochronology and from a recent riverbed in the Kanto Plain, Japan. Samples from the recent riverbed show a weak OSL signal only and gave young ages. Samples of river terrace sediments for optical dating were collected...[Show more]
