The measurement of time is a critical parameter in archaeology and particularly in In this Perspective, we explain the basis of luminescence dating so the “​Soil genesis, optical dating, and geoarchaeological evaluation of two and display in OSL dating: An overview and some recommendations.

Luminescence dating including thermoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence is a type of dating methodology that measures the amount of light emitted from energy stored in certain rock types and derived soils to obtain an absolute date for a specific event that occurred in the past. The method is a direct dating technique , meaning that the amount of energy emitted is a direct result of the event being measured.

Better still, unlike radiocarbon dating , the effect luminescence dating measures increases with time. As a result, there is no upper date limit set by the sensitivity of the method itself, although other factors may limit the method’s feasibility. To put it simply, certain minerals quartz, feldspar, and calcite , store energy from the sun at a known rate. This energy is lodged in the imperfect lattices of the mineral’s crystals. Heating these crystals such as when a pottery vessel is fired or when rocks are heated empties the stored energy, after which time the mineral begins absorbing energy again.

TL dating is a matter of comparing the energy stored in a crystal to what “ought” to be there, thereby coming up with a date-of-last-heated. In the same way, more or less, OSL optically stimulated luminescence dating measures the last time an object was exposed to sunlight. Luminescence dating is good for between a few hundred to at least several hundred thousand years, making it much more useful than carbon dating.

The term luminescence refers to the energy emitted as light from minerals such as quartz and feldspar after they’ve been exposed to an ionizing radiation of some sort. Minerals—and, in fact, everything on our planet—are exposed to cosmic radiation : luminescence dating takes advantage of the fact that certain minerals both collect and release energy from that radiation under specific conditions. Crystalline rock types and soils collect energy from the radioactive decay of cosmic uranium, thorium, and potassium Electrons from these substances get trapped in the mineral’s crystalline structure, and continuing exposure of the rocks to these elements over time leads to predictable increases in the number of electrons caught in the matrices.

The importance of dating calcium carbonate based formations for setting age limits has been well demonstrated by both the uranium series disequilibrium method as well as Electron Paramagnetic Resonance EPR techniques. As far as luminescence techniques are concerned, Wintle , has undertaken some of the initial work to assess whether the TL signal from calcite could be used to date geologically relevant samples. The reader may also refer to McDougal for a review of earlier achievements on this related topic.

Due to the problematic properties, or even the lack, of optically stimulated luminescence OSL signal, thermoluminescence TL stands as the only luminescence technique available for dating applications for these formations. Despite the numerous reports dealing with the EPR dating applications of calcium carbonates for example Ikeya, and references therein , a limited number of papers deal with the corresponding luminescence applications of this mineral within the last 35 years Debenham, ; Debenham and Aitken, ; Down et al.

Throughout this aforementioned literature, the TL properties of various types of CaCO 3 samples have been reported and the ages were in most cases lower than ka. The present study provides methodological aspects on the ED estimation using the multiple-aliquot additive-dose procedure in the TL of calcium carbonate samples. Two different alternative approaches were adopted, namely a TL peak resolved analysis following deconvolution and the plateau method without deconvolution.

Four different samples from the Quaternary were studied. This filter has a transmission window that ranges from to nm and it was used for all TL measurements. All luminescence measurements were conducted at the Institute of Nuclear Sciences of Ankara University. Travertine deposits are the product of calcium carbonate precipitation under cool water Ford and Pedley, The thickness of the deposits differs between 15 and 25 meters.
