TL signatures of quartz grains of different origin

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Quartz grains containing different impurities and at different concentrations exhibit different characteristic TL spectra when heated. This property is used to demonstrate the possibility of units within a sedimentary sequence being derived from more than one source and thus being suggestive of a switch in sedimentary supply. This empirical study utilizes this difference in TL signature of trace the movement of sand across the source bordering dunes of the Finke River and shows the input of colluvial sediment into an otherwise alluvial sedimentary sequence. © 1994.
