Abstract

The AA. present a detailed thermoluminescence chronology of soil horizons from 11 late Quaternary coastal aeolian and barrier sedimentary sequencies along a 900 km stretch of coast in south-east Australia. The results show that in the majority of cases the A and B horizons of what appear to be typical intact podzol profiles have widely disparate ages. The AA. suggest that these soil profiles have been subject to reworking. Although these soils give the appearance of being intact, they are in fact composed of several depositional units. Without recognition of this possibility, error may result in reconstruction of Quaternary
