Quaternary dating studies using ESR signals, with emphasis on shell, coral, tooth enamel and quartz

Yoshida, Hiroyuki


In this study, the electron spin resonance (ESR) method is examined as a suitable dating tool to estimate the age of Quaternary materials. Although ESR dating has contributed substantially to earth science and archaeological studies, a standard procedure has not yet been developed for mollusc shell. Also, there has not been any practical application of ESR to the dating of sediments using solar-reset quartz. In this study, recently published and newly developed ESR methods are tested and...[Show more]
