The mathematical basis for the US-ESR dating method

Shao, Qingfeng; Chadam, John; Grun, Rainer; Falgueres, Christophe; Dolo, Jean-Michel; Bahain, Jean-Jacques


Over the past two decades, the combined electron spin resonance (ESR) and U-series dating method has been widely applied to date fossil teeth for archaeological studies through the use of the US-ESR model. The obtained age, compatible with both the ESR and U-series data determined in all dental tissues and the burial environment, is more flexible and reliable than the parametric uptake ages (by early, linear or recent uptake models), for which selection was often based on the expected age of...[Show more]
