The file contains the dune age and depth data used in the calulation of the Accumulation intensity values for the analysis of Asian dune accumulation. Data are extracted form the publically available INQUA dune Atlas database at Date are those included in the database on publication in 2016 and refered to in Lancaster et al. (2016) In each tab: Column 1 gives the age code in the database (from which original sources can be identified) Column 2 is blank Column 3 gives the sampling depth, in m allowing individual age sampling points ina profile/section/core to be related to each other Column 4 gives the published age (OSL or TL) in years Column 5 giuves the associated 1 sigma age error Data are grouped according to samplelocation, ie a cluster of ages from a section/profile/core ina dune are grouped together Blank rows separate sites These data were then analysed using the AI numerial model in Thomas and Bailey (2017) References Lancaster, N., Wolfe, S., Thomas, D.S.G., and 12 other.s 2016.
