Cesium dating sediments

The CRS model and/or the slope regression model will be applied. cumulative dry weight (g/cm) is supplied with the model results and interpretation.

CEN has the equipment and expertise to prepare samples for AMS dating, which includes 2 major steps: C of your samples can also be done.

Diffuse Reflectance Spectrometry is used to define soil and sediment samples by different reflectance and wavelength parameters.

The reflectance and wavelength parameters are then computed into colour coefficients, and a mixing model used to identify differences and similarities.

In conjunction with the Geosciences Advisory Unit at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton we are able to offer this technique for precisely dating very recent sediments.

This is particularly applicable in dating sediment accumulation rates for geohazard analysis in subsea engineering projects.

We are using the AMS method (Accelerator Mass Spectrometry). C-H-N analyses are also available now (possibility to get the percentages of C (Carbon), H (Hydrogen) and N (Nitrogen) for dry samples.

The analyses are processed with a Leco CHN628 elemental analyzer.

Cs inventories in the study cores range from 38 to 95% of local reference inventories.
