Spectra in the visible (VIS) and infrared (IR) region contain a wide variety of information about inorganic and organic substances in sediments. The information from the spectra enables a wide array of applications that allow quantitative, semiquantitative, and qualitative characterization of sediment. Due to the fact that instrument/experimental setups are simple, rapid, and cost-saving and that only small sample quantities are required, the technique has become valuable in paleolimnological and Quaternary science. This article summarizes the theoretical background of VIS and IR spectroscopy, explains the analytical process, introduces statistical tools used for interpretation of spectra, and provides examples of applications in Quaternary science.
