An introduction to dating techniques: a guide for geomorphologists

Chapter


Abstract


  • This chapter provides researchers with a guide to some of the types of dating techniques that can be used in geomorphological investigations and issues that need to be addressed when using geochronological data, specifically issues relating to accuracy and precision. This chapter also introduces the ‘types’ of dating methods that are commonly used in geomorphological studies. This includes sidereal, isotopic, radiogenic, and chemical dating methods.
