About W. Jack Rink

I am a geochronologist with interest in dating archaeological sites and coastal deposits. I mainly use electron spin resonance dating of tooth enamel and quartz, and optical luminescence dating of quartz in this quest. I seek collaboration with other workers interested in these areas.
