    Abstract

    Clastic detritus preserved within a sedimentary basin represents a natural reservoir of geological information that can be used to constrain sediment deposition age and develop a picture of the sediment routing system and source terrain(s) in terms of location, age, composition and tectonic and climate stability. This chapter charts the development and applications of fission-track (FT) analysis to solve stratigraphic and provenance problems. Many of the interpretative tools and strategies developed for FT data are also applicable to detrital (U–Th)/He and other geochronological data. Provenance interpretations based on double and triple-dating strategies may be further improved by combining with mineral trace element data.
