Abstract

On the alluvial fan of Nahal Shehoret in the extremely arid region of the Negev desert, Reg soils developed on stable alluvial surfaces in colluvium along terrace risers and in colluvial units on a complex fault scarp were compared. IRSL dates of the tectonically displaced alluvial surfaces and colluvial units at the same site enabled the AA. to re-evaluate the use of Reg soils for relative dating. The similarity of age estimates from IRSL dating and the degree of soil development in this environment indicates that soils can be used to date surfaces and colluvial units
