Abstract

The primary subject of this paper is a test of optical dating using sand-sized quartz grains from an independently well-dated Holocene dune sequence from the Ferris dune field, Clear Creek, Wyoming. The use of a stratigraphic sequence provides a more comprehensive test of the method than do the isolated deposits used by Smith et al. (1991) and provides a convincing demonstration of the method's validity
