Full Description

This introductory textbook introduces the basics of dating, the range of techniques available and the strengths and limitations of each of the principal methods. The coverage includes: the concept of time in Quaternary Science and related fields; the history of dating from lithostratigraphy and biostratigraphy; the development and application of radiometric methods; and, different methods in dating: radiometric dating, incremental dating, relative dating and age equivalence. Presented in a clear and straightforward manner with the minimum of technical detail, this text is a great introduction for both students and practitioners in the Earth, Environmental and Archaeological Sciences. "This book is a must for any Quaternary scientist." - "South African Geographical Journal", September 2006. "...very well organized, clearly and straightforwardly written and provides a good overview on the wide field of Quaternary dating methods..." - "Journal Of Quaternary Science", January 2007.
