Abstract


  • In our isochron studies using grains of different sizes,

    we observed that the IRSL ages obtained from K‐feldspar

    without correction for fading show an increase with increasing

    grain size [Li et al., 2007, 2008]. Huntley [2011a] argued

    that this result was caused by different fading rates for grains

    of different sizes or by different source materials for different

    sizes of grains. We replied to his comment [Li et al., 2011],

    suggesting that the phenomenon could be explained by there

    being different fading rates for the IRSL signals produced

    by natural and laboratory irradiation [Li et al., 2007, 2008].

    Instead of applying a correction to the whole of the IRSL

    signal [Zhao and Li, 2002], Li et al. [2008] deduced that the

    IRSL signal derived from the internal dose rate does not

    fade. An isochron dating method using the internal dose was

    proposed, and it appeared to be able to give reliable ages for

    well‐bleached aeolian samples [Li et al., 2008]. We are

    pleased that Huntley [2011b] has put forward new comments

    and some valuable explanations for our isochron data

    [Li et al., 2008] and that we can take the opportunity to reply

    to his comments.
