Abstract


  • This paper explores the use of single grain luminescence measurements in isochron dating of K-rich feldspars. The thermal stability of individual feldspar grains was investigated using pulse annealing methods, which appears to distinguish between K-rich and Na-rich feldspars. A good isochron fit was obtained using synthetic aliquots produced from the single grain data set and the age obtained based on an assumed K content of 13 ± 1% was in good agreement with that obtained using single aliquot measurements (and with other age control).
