Abstract

Because of its potential for establishing chronologies far beyond the range of C 14, thermoluminescence (TL) dating has made a significant contribution to the study of the Quaternary history of many Australian landscapes. The AA. use this technique here, together with C 14 dating and pedogenic evidence, to assess the reliability of TL determinations for alluvium in the valleys of the Clyde River and Termeil Creek. The Pleistocene TL ages from these valleys seem reliable, but Holocene dates do not. However, the AA. demonstrate that, even where inadequate bleaching is demonstrable, TL analysis can still yield important insight to depositional processes
