Luminescence profiling is a rapid survey method for assessing the suitability of sediments for full dating based on the presence of particular minerals, grain-sizes and luminescence signals.

Only one heated rock of sufficient mass, recovered in square 4H archaeological layer 2, exhibited acceptable properties for successful dating. The resulting TL age, 142 ± 23 ka (EVA-LUM-06/01), places Karabai I within MIS 6. This contrasts with the luminescence profile study that suggested sedimentary deposition within MIS 4-5.

At Karabai I the study revealed many factors that would complicate a subsequent full dating study, however a tentative age range of 60-115 ka was obtained using the ‘IRSL’ and ‘post IR & OSL TL’ signal from the polymineral coarse fraction. Luminescence signals based on quartz were found to be saturating and so could provide only minimum ages. Only one heated rock of sufficient mass, recovered in square 4H archaeological layer 2, exhibited acceptable properties for successful dating.
