Abstract

Electron spin resonance dating has been applied in Quaternary sciences for more than 30 years. The method is based on the time-dependent accumulation of trapped free electrons and holes in minerals. This article explains the underlying principles of the method and illustrates its contribution to Quaternary sciences in a series of applications ranging from the coral reef tracts of Barbados to the human remains at Border Cave in South Africa.
