U-series isotopes, and especially the sequence 238U-234U-230Th revealed essential in validating the astronomical theory of climate through the dating of high interglacial sea levels and provided the means to calibrate the radiocarbon time scale into "calendar years". The most commonly used technique is optically stimulated luminescence dating (OSL dating).

All sediments and soils contain trace amounts of radioactive isotopes including uranium, thorium, rubidium and potassium.

It applies geochronological methods, especially radiometric dating.

The geochronological scale is a periodic scale using the year as a basic unit.

Good descriptions of techniques and their applications relavant to Quaternary problems can be found in Walker (2005).

The two techniques most commonly used by Quaternary stratigraphers are radio carbon dating (Ar of potassium-bearing minerals, because both these methods can provide high precision ages.
