General map of the study area. In contrast, the radial plots for quartz from both samples show the presence of high palaeodoses corresponding with incompletely bleached grains. Each D e value is represented by a point. The main foci may be summarised as follows: These samples originate from a section exposing the sediments from the lower terrace M1.

Evidence for this is shown by the worldwide increase in the number of laboratories and publications.
This assumption can be considered as valid if the decay series show a radioactive equilibrium, i. This is especially the case of glaciogenic deposits especially fluvio-glacial to glacio-lacustrine which are preserved in all the French mountains and often include sand-sized deposits potentially suitable for OSL dating; v the dating of slope-deposits lato sensu may be used to achieve a better understanding of the influence of human societies on slope dynamics, as well as for hazard management. From an applied point of view, the acquisition of an extensive dataset is essential for a better understanding of fluvial response to environmental changes and for sediment budget reconstructions e.
