Radiation Measurements 43, Ancient TL 16, The contents of radionuclides within the sediment as well as information about their decay behaviour can be obtained by high resolution gamma spectroscopy. In contrast, the radial plots for quartz from both samples show the presence of high palaeodoses corresponding with incompletely bleached grains. Ancient TL 24,

Basically the comparison of the natural signal with the artificial luminescence signals should make it possible to interpolate the palaeodose directly. It is highly recommended to apply measurement procedures in the laboratory to detect the fading. Age and source of soil erosion derived colluvial sediments at Vaihingen Enz, Germany. In that case the sediment has to be dried, homogenised by grinding, cast inside an air-tight container to prevent from the loss of Rn by gaseous diffusion and stored for one month. He also wishes to gratefully acknowledge the four anonymous reviewers for their very constructive comments and advice on the first version of the manuscript.
