Age estimates obtained using a total dose normalization method were found to give less scatter than estimates obtained using the natural normalization method.
The optical dating results support radiocarbon evidence for a dune-forming episode at Formby Point around 3000 years ago, and are consistent with historical evidence that transgressive sand sheets invaded the western margin of Downholland Moss during the Middle Ages.
Results from a third site, inland of Hightown, suggest that aeolian deposits previously mapped as part of the Shirdley Hill Sand were formed during the early to mid-Flandrian.
For a perfect ending to a perfect trip, snuggle up on the beach and watch the sunset.
This paper presents the results of a pilot investigation carried out to assess the potential of optical dating of quartz in providing a chronostratigraphic framework for the coastal aeolian sand deposits.
The initial results obtained from three sites are consistent with independent stratigraphie and radiocarbon dating evidence, and indicate that the method has potential, even where the sands have been affected by post-depositional weathering and leaching.
You don't have to tell every sordid detail about your life on the first date, but if your goal is a lasting, loving relationship, you can't build that on lies.
If a dating partner asks a question that you don't feel comfortable answering and are tempted to answer with a lie, you can simply say, "That's something I'd like to wait to talk about until we know each other better." Maintaining good boundaries, those that are appropriate to the stage of the relationship or to your own comfort level, is not the same as being untruthful.
