Our equipment has a very high efficiency and ultra-low background so can be used to measure tiny amounts of radionuclides. We therefore welcome projects where low-level radioactivity is expected such as sediments from New Zealand and the Pacific Islands. Standard rate for routine work with priority processing: NZ00 GST per sample. Dating the Kawakawa/Oruanui eruption: comment on optical luminescence dating of a loess section containing a critical tephra marker horizon, SW North Island of New Zealand by R. We will also advise you about sampling and help with the interpretation of results. Turnaround time is dependent on the workload of the lab, so please enquire about the status when submitting samples. This price includes all irradiation and luminescence measurements required to obtain the equivalent dose, and high resolution laboratory gamma-spectrometry for dose rate determination. Please ask us for a quote for your sample analysis. The atmospheric lead record preserved in lagoon sediments at a remote equatorial Pacific location: Palmyra Atoll, northern Line Islands. Luminescence dating is a technique used to date Quaternary sediments and for determining when ancient materials such as pottery, ceramics, bricks or tiles were last heated.
Cut back the surface of the outcrop by about 20 cm to expose fresh material3. Slip Rate on the Wellington Fault, New Zealand, during the Late Quaternary: Evidence for Variable Slip during the Holocene.
We do not accept responsibility if samples were taken incorrectly.
Our pricing only covers our costs and is not for profit. Aeolianite, calcrete/microbialite and karst in southwestern Australia as indicators of Middle to Late Quaternary palaeoclimates.
The other room houses most of the modern electronic equipment, including: Please contact Ningsheng Wang (MSc.) for more information.
Our luminescence dating service is available for researchers in New Zealand and overseas.
