is an international journal devoted to the publication of the highest-quality, peer-reviewed articles on all aspects of dating methods applicable to the Quaternary Period - the last 2.6 million years of Earth history.
Reliable ages are fundamental to place changes in climates...
From this limited amount of information, and through assumptions about the accumulation history (sedimentation rate, hiatuses), the ages of all depths of a core need to be estimated somehow (age-depth modelling).
There is perhaps no greater attack on science than Young Earth creationism (YEC).
There are three standard creationist responses: First, creationists assert that current rates (Y) are different than past rates.
It is possible that these rates changed — but under uniformitarianism, which is necessary for science to function, we must assume that rates did not change unless there is evidence for this change.
By far most of the sites in the EPD have some some of age control.
Age models are vitally important for palaeoecological/palaeoclimatological studies, especially when multiple proxy archives need to be compared (e.g., an EPD search for mid-Holocene sites).
