dc.description.abstractIn interstadial deposits, sand interbeds gain limited consideration in comparison with organic sediments, and therefore tend to be underrepresented in paleoenvironmental reconstructions. The Raunis site, central-eastern Latvia, is an example where organic beds have already gained some attention and been used to understand the complex interactions between advance and retreat of the Scandinavian Ice Sheet in the region. Sandy interlayers have so far not been investigated in detail and their time of deposition has also been unknown, therefore exploring these clastic-organic sediment alternation is of interest. This study provides a new set of luminescence datings along with sedimentological information from the character of individual quartz grains as detected from scanning electron microscope analysis. Sandy interlayers are dated to between 12 and 122 ka. Fast component OSL signal dominates in all investigated samples, but several samples have broad and/or skewed dose distributions. Only one sample is considered reliable and provides an age of 12.0 ± 0.6 ka. A radiocarbon age from organic sediments in the same unit yields an age of 14 025 ± 270 cal y BP. These two dates do not agree within 2 sigma, and this is likely related to reservoir and hard water effects of the radiocarbon sample. Sediments at the Raunis site fall into the Greenland Interstadial 1, but more detailed specification is not possible. The rest of the OSL ages are older than expected, likely due to incomplete bleaching during deposition. This means that stratigraphic reliability of this key site is likely hampered for further regional correlation.en_US
