Luminescence dating can provide ages for the deposition of sediments using the commonest minerals on the Earth, quartz and feldspar, for the past 150 ka. These methods provide a powerful tool to reconstruct the timing of past environmental events and tectonic movements, especially where other radiometric dating methods are not applicable due to the lack of suitable materials. This issue of Quaternary International contains one review paper and nine original papers dealing with various aspects of the application of luminescence methods: the first group of papers illustrate different ways in which luminescence dating of sediments can be used to constrain the timing of seismic activity while the second group of papers illustrate the wide range of depositional environments in which luminescence can be applied, including coastal, fluvial and glacial, providing chronologies of Quaternary environmental and tectonic changes Optically stimulated luminescence dating of a stratigraphic Late Glacial–Holocene sequence in the Po plain (Bubano quarry, Bologna, Italy).
