TEPHROCHRONOLOGY: A DATING METHOD

John A. Wolfe
 

 

 

 

ABSTRACT



Quantitative evaluation of tephra deposit is a useful tool to indirectly date volcanic deposits and its associated sedimentary rocks. This method can bridge the gap of limitation of various radiometric methods. In the Philippines where volumetric deposits of tephra exists, "Tephrochronology" will certainly be a tool that can bring forth fruitful results.
