These comparisons support the suitability of our single-grain OSL results and suggest there may be good potential for using quartz supergrains to establish extended-range chronologies at some Middle Pleistocene sites.
Comparisons with other single-grain OSL studies across the Iberian central plains suggest that favourable dose saturation properties may be influenced by regional-scale geological controls.
In this study we investigate extended-range single-grain OSL dating potential at Cuesta de la Bajada, one of the most important Ancient Middle Palaeolithic sites in the Iberian Peninsula.
One important component will be monitoring coastal surface circulation using a technology referred to as HF radar (high frequency).
We set up an experimental array at RTC in 2000 using a new instrument called CODAR (Barrack et al., Oceans 2000).
I’m enjoying working with new colleagues and seeing another facet of the CSU. About every 30 years the oceanography community undergoes a national self examination.
The present self evaluation ( and is coming out strongly in support of creating regional associations for operating coastal ocean observatories.
(However, it has also meant more work--maybe too much! I am working with American colleagues to extend to Cuba the network of ground based GPS receiving stations (known as "COCONet") that can detect in real time the amount of water vapor present in the atmosphere. With the new degree I will start teaching more majors classes.
