The Glow Curve is a website dedicated to luminescence dating research. The site is administered by Amanda Keen-Zebert, Associate Prof. at the Desert Research Institute, and her research team. The site name comes from the graphic representation of the decay of luminescence intensity, which is used to measure and calculate the burial age of sediments.
