  1. Ages were calculated using the zeta calibration method (Hurford and Green 1983), glass dosimeter IRMM541, and a zeta value of 101 ± 8 year/cm2 (S. Erne-Schmid) calculated with Fish Canyon Tuff zircon standards
  2. ρs: the spontaneous (induced) track density (105 tracks/cm2); Ns: the number of counted spontaneous (induced) tracks; ρd: the dosimeter track density (105 tracks/cm2); Ni: the number of tracks counted on the dosimeter; P(χ)2: the probability of obtained Chi-square value for n degree of freedom (where n is the number of crystals minus 1)
