Single-grain optically-stimulated luminescence and dosimetry instruments to service the Sydney metropolitan and greater New South Wales region
Project Member(s): Skilbeck, C.
Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Linkage Infrastructure)
Start year: 2010
Summary: The acquisition of a single-grain optically-stimulated luminescence reader and dosimetry instruments will permit five institutions in the Sydney metropolitan and greater NSW region to establish chronologies for complex fluvial, marine, and coastal sedimentary environments.
