Luminescence chronology of loess-paleosol sequences form southern South Island, New Zealand

Berger, Glenn W; Pillans, Bradley; Bruce, J G; McIntosh, P D


The loess-paleosol sequences in New Zealand are among the thickest in the southern hemisphere, and preserve an important terrestrial record of paleoclimatic changes. Unlike loess-paleosol sequences in North Island, most of those in South Island lack discrete chronostratigraphic marker ash beds, excepting perhaps the widespread ∼24 ka Kawakawa Tephra. Therefore, any specific correlation to marine isotope stage (MIS) proxy records or to loess-paleosol sequences in the northern hemisphere has been...[Show more]
