    The impetus behind this study is to understand the sedimentological dynamics of very young fluvial systems in the Amazon River catchment and relate these to land use change and modern analogue studies of tidal rhythmites in the geologic record. Initial quartz optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating feasibility studies have concentrated on spit and bar deposits in the Rio Tapajó: Joel Q. G. Spencer, Sébastien Huot, Allen W. Archer, Marcellus M. Caldas. The main trend of the research activity, the laboratory has long been engaged in, is the feldspar-based IR-OSL and mollusc shell-based ESR-study of Quaternary sedimentary dynamics and environmental changes in the Northern Eurasia(including the high-Arctic) region. The major goal of the work is to establish the periodicity and chronology of the main Quaternary events and their relationship with.

    The Pleistocene also saw the evolution and expansion of our own species, Homo sapiens, and by the close of the Pleistocene, humans had spread through most of the world. According to a controversial theory first proposed in the s, human hunting around the close of the Pleistocene caused or contributed to the extinction of many of the. Pleistocene Epoch, earlier and major of the two epochs that constitute the Quaternary Period of the Earth’s history, and the time period during which a succession of glacial and interglacial climatic cycles occurred. The base of the Gelasian Stage (2,, to 1,, years ago) marks the beginning of Pleistocene, which is also the base of the Quarternary Period.

Luminescence dating of sediments associated with former glacial activity has been undertaken for over 40 years. Some of the earliest work undertaken on the application of luminescence to dating geological sediments was carried out in the former Soviet Union and included analysis of sediments resulting from a variety of different glacial processes.

Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene Epoch - Pleistocene events and environments: Environments during the Pleistocene were dynamic and underwent dramatic change in response to cycles of climatic change and the development of large ice sheets.

The Pleistocene (/ ˈ p l aɪ s. t ə ˌ s iː n,-t oʊ-/ PLYSE-tə-seen, -⁠toh- often colloquially referred to as the Ice Age) is the geological epoch that lasted from about 2, to 11, years ago, spanning the world's most recent period of repeated end of the Pleistocene corresponds with the end of the last glacial period and also with the end of the Paleolithic age.

This is important to stratigraphic dating, which assumes that the law of superposition holds true and that an object cannot be older than the materials of which it is composed.

The law was first proposed in the 17th century by the Danish scientist Nicolas Steno. Radiocarbon dating (using 14 C) can be applied to many geological materials, including sediments and sedimentary rocks, but the materials in question must be younger than 60 ka.

Fragments of wood incorporated into young sediments are good candidates for carbon dating, and this technique has been used widely in studies involving late Pleistocene glaciers and glacial : Steven Earle.

Reworking of older Pleistocene deposits by Wisconsinan ice is recognized in a few places, and overrunning without removal of older deposits by younger ice also seems to have occurred.

Hence, some deposits in Wisconsin now correlated with the Wisconsinan Stage may prove to be older when dating methods improve or new evidence appears.Table briefly summarizes 26 different dating methods noting their general applicability to studies of active tectonism, the age range of each method and the optimum accuracy within parts of this age range, and the basis of the method and the key problems in its use.Infour tufa samples from elevations of m to ∼ m yielded Last Glacial Maximum ages of ca.
