Abstract

Two methods that look promising are tephra-hydration dating, and etching of heavy mineral phenocrysts. Basic research into the weathering of tephra will be needed before either method can be used with confidence, but the potential is there. The paper discusses these methods, the problems associated with them, the uses to which they have been put, and the data that have been collected.
