Using the Land-Ocean Transition to Understand Past Coastal Landscapes

Using the Land-Ocean Transition to Understand Past Coastal Landscapes

A public lecture by Mark Bateman, Director Sheffield Luminescence Dating Laboratory, university of Sheffield andInstitute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

This talk will show how integrating off-shore and on-shore topography with an extensive luminescence dating programme allows for a better understanding of the evolution of coastlines through time.

The sediments themselves can also be used to give hints of the humans, animals and plants occupying past dunes.
