Abstract

This study evaluates the accuracy of optically stimulated luminescence to date well-preserved strandline sequences at Manistique Thompson bay (Lake Michigan), and Tahquamenon and Grand Traverse Bays (Lake Superior) that span the past-4500 yr. The single aliquot regeneration (SAR) method is applied to produce absolute ages for littoral and eolian sediments. SAR ages are compared against AMS and conventional C 14 ages on swale organics. This study gives insight on the suitability of SAR-OSL to date late Holocene strandplains adjacent to large lakes or oceans and ultimately to refine and resolve water-level history
