Introduction

Samples for OSL dating have been taken to verify the age of the Campine Plateau, in support of cosmogenic radionuclide datings performed at UCL. The research frames into the ESDIHG project (see Roadmap to the future, W&D).

Objective

The objective of this scientific visit is to determine the OSL age (or at least a minimum age) of the top sediments of the Campine Plateau near As.
