ScopeLuminescence and ESR are phenomena caused by radiation dose to a range of materials, including quartz, feldspar, and carbonates, and have been utilized for geological dating methods. Recent progress has made these techniques reliable methods that can be applied universally to geological records from several decades to a million years old. Attempts have also been made to apply the methods to various problems of earth and planetary sciences, such as estimates of denudation rate of earth surface and activity of seismic faults, and provenance of sediments. For further development and dissemination of these techniques, this session invites presentations of original research and reviews on their basics and application. Participants who have relevant research interests are welcome to join the discussion to seek new research collaboration.
