'If you came up with a numerical value, you were wrong (sorry!

The compositionally-corrected induced thermoluminescence values for a suite of basalts from Big Island of Hawaii show a weak correlation with age although the TL-age slope for the Hawaii samples is shallower than similar data for basalts from Idaho.
