SEDIMENT DATING


  • Use of the impulse dating methods (137Cs, 241Am) and the natural 210Pb method to determine accumulation rates.
  • Alternative radiometric methods are also available where appropriate (e.g. tritium & 60Co).
  • Application to sediment from diverse environments (coastal, estuarine, marine and lacustrine) for applied research and geotechnical applications.
  • Clients include scientists from Environmental Protection Agencies, Academia and Geotechnical companies.
  • Links with other specialist groups can include microfossil and 14C dating.
