Beyond sediments: luminescence chronometry of consolidated rocks (3G013915)

The project develops two innovative areas of research: (i) luminescence-thermochronology and (ii)rock surface exposure dating. The first aims at providing chronologies for recent development of mountainous and tectonic topography and geomorphology; the second at determining the time that elapsed since hard-rock surfaces, with cultural, archaeological or geological significance, became either shielded from or exposed to sunlight.
