The paper also reviews the place of OSL dating in geomorphological research in France and assesses its potential for further research, by focusing on the diversity of sedimentary environments and topics to which it can be usefully applied.
Hence it underlines the increasing importance of the method to geomorphological research, especially by contributing to the development of quantitative geomorphology.
Absolute dating methods have been developed over the last five decades (Jull and Scott, 2007).
Although a relatively new technique, particularly in subaqueous sediments, Strata Data have pioneered its industrial application in dating superficial seabed deposits for geohazard risk assessment.Palaeogeography Palaeoclimatology Palaeoecology 466, 240–251.
