This report describes the continuation of our evaluation of the properties of certain thermoluminescent (TL) materials which may be of use as tracers in field sediment studies. A summary is given of some existing tracer techniques, including the use of radioactive, fluorescent and chemical tracers. A brief description is given of the property of thermoluminescence and the potential advantages of a thermoluminescent tracer material. The results of various laboratory tests are described and particular emphasis is given to the properties of fluorite which has appeared as the most promising of the minerals tested. Recommendations are given for further work.
