CDI Seminar - Dating Coral Terraces by Electron Spin Resonance (ESR)

25 October, 2022

To precisely evaluate the uplift rate of the coastal areas in the Gulf Aqaba it is necessary to estimate the ages of the coral platforms. To do this, Matthieu, in addition to the usual methods, is experimenting with the Electron Spin Resonance technique with the samples collected in the spring within the Aqaba fieldwork.

Today he will explain how this technique can improve the previous measurements and show some of the preliminary results.
