A method of establishing the age of archaeological finds or remains by comparing them with other finds or remains which sometimes have known dates. Mentioned in? References in periodicals archive? Shells were aged by the Sclerochronology Laboratory at the Pacific Biological Station using the dendrochronological technique of cross-dating. The year of death of the dead shells was determined by using the novel technique of overlapping the synchronous growth patterns of the live and dead shells. Storm-induced anastrophic burial of the pacific geoduck Panopea generosa on the west coast of Vancouver Island.
Dating techniques are procedures used by scientists to determine the age of rocks, fossils, or artifacts. Relative dating methods tell only if one sample is older or younger than another; absolute dating methods provide an approximate date in years. The latter have generally been available only since Many absolute dating techniques take advantage of radioactive decay , whereby a radioactive form of an element decays into a non-radioactive product at a regular rate. Others, such as amino acid racimization and cation-ratio dating, are based on chemical changes in the organic or inorganic composition of a sample. In recent years, a few of these methods have come under close scrutiny as scientists strive to develop the most accurate dating techniques possible.
Luminescence dating including thermoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence is a type of dating methodology that measures the amount of light emitted from energy stored in certain rock types and derived soils to obtain an absolute date for a specific event that occurred in the past. The method is a direct dating technique , meaning that the amount of energy emitted is a direct result of the event being measured. Better still, unlike radiocarbon dating , the effect luminescence dating measures increases with time. As a result, there is no upper date limit set by the sensitivity of the method itself, although other factors may limit the method's feasibility.
