Desert dune system response to Late Quaternary environmental change in the northeastern Rub’ al Khali: Advances in the application of optically stimulated luminescence datasets

Abstract:

The application of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dating to desert sand dunes has allowed accumulation histories to be used as tools to infer past environmental change. In response to issues facing the interpretation of these records, two research questions are addressed in this thesis. (i) Are dune chronologies representative of dune stratigraphies? And (ii) how can we most appropriately interpret dune chronologies as records of Quaternary environmental conditions?

Five du...
