Electron spin resonance dating
The conference will be followed by an optional 3-day field trip that will take participants to the south-east of South Australia for a palaeontological and geological themed visit to the World Heritage Naracoorte Caves fossil sites, the stranded Pleistocene beach ridges and UN Kanawinka Geopark and the world-famous Coonawarra and Limestone Coast wine regions.

The conference invites contributions from this broad range of applications, including Quaternary geology, geomorphology and landscape evolution, palaeontology, palaeobotany, archaeology, soil science, palaeoclimatology, provenancing, mineral prospecting, tectonics, space science, dose-rate assessment, retrospective population dosimetry and radiological event studies, including relating to the aftermath of the 2011 Tohoku earthquake.
Contributions are also invited on applications to new materials, current developments and methodological aspects of ESR, Thermoluminescence and Radioluminescence, and novel Optical Dating techniques such as TT-OSL and PIR-IRSL.

Changes in the spin of unpaired electrons cause radiation to be absorbed at certain frequencies.
In order to better ascertain the chronological framework of the site, we dated several proxies.
Various speleothem samples were processed by U-series using a coupled induced plasma mass spectrometer (ICPMS-MC).
The resulting isotopic ratios are beyond the secular equilibrium and show that these samples do not appear to be in direct stratigraphic relation with the archaeological sequence.
Nine Equus teeth were analyzed by the combined ESR/U-series method.
