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.
