Westland is a key region in New Zealand for Quaternary stratigraphy; however, the regional glacial chronology is largely unsupported by numerical ages because of the unreliability of radiocarbon dating in this high-rainfall region. Therefore, we tested the ability of thermoluminescence (TL) and infrared-stimulated luminescence (IRSL) to produce stratigraphically consistent age estimates in this area. At Blue Spur Road, we obtained a stratigraphically reasonable TL age of 47 ± 7 ka in the second...[Show more]
