Suggested terminology for quaternary dating methods

The course emphasises the practical applications of the different dating methods, as well as their advantages and pitfalls.

It will be useful to have attended GEO2230 Reconstructing Past Environments and links with the Iceland field trip in the second year.Several dating methods exist, depending on different criteria and techniques, and some very well known examples of disciplines using such techniques are, for example, history, archaeology, geology, paleontology, astronomy and even forensic science, since in the latter it is sometimes necessary to investigate the moment in the past in which the death of a cadaver occurred.Relative dating methods are unable to determine the absolute age of an object or event, but can determine the impossibility of a particular event happening before or after another event of which the absolute date is well known.This introductory textbook introduces the basics of dating, the range of techniques available and the strengths and limitations of each of the principal methods.The coverage includes: the concept of time in Quaternary Science and related fields; the history of dating from lithostratigraphy and biostratigraphy; the development and application of radiometric methods; and, different methods in dating: radiometric dating, incremental dating, relative dating and age equivalence.In this relative dating method, Latin terms ante quem and post quem are usually used to indicate both the oldest and the most recent possible moments when an event occurred or an artifact was left in a stratum.
