Optically stimulated luminescence (osl) is a technique used for dating sand grains, often used in glacial outwash landforms.
In brief: relative dating vs absolute dating • dating techniques are used in archeology to ascertain the age of old artifacts and a broad classification of these methods bifurcates them in relative dating and absolute dating. How do scientists determine the age of by using radiometric dating to determine the age of other techniques include analyzing amino acids and measuring. A) relative dating methods : based on a discipline of geology called stratigraphy, rock layers are used to decipher the sequence of historical geological events relative techniques can determine the sequence of events but not the precise date of an event, making these methods unreli.
