Datation par luminescence : recherches méthodologiques et applications au volcanisme dans l'environnement de Laschamp

Abstract : The aim of this work was to date lava flows from the Chaîne des Puys (Massif Central, France) which were chronologically situated during the period of the Laschamp paleomagnetic event (30-50 ka). The methods used were thermoluminescence and optically stimulated luminescence applied to quartz grains and quartz pebbles extracted from sediments baked by the lava flows. These minerals often emit luminescence signals exhibiting erratic behaviour. Thus, their palaeodoses were tentatively determined by various methods to select those which were most likely to yield reliable results. These intercomparisons highlighted a dispersion of results beyond what could be expected from the uncertainties usually associated with each measurement. In the majority of cases, these observations forced us to propose a relatively wide interval in which the most probable age of the sample is included.
