Abstract
    We have developed a novel method, based on high performance liquid chromatography-mass spectrometry, for the rapid and quantitative analysis of levoglucosan in geological samples. Compared with existing methods, it does not require derivatization or extensive work up, and requires less sample material. Its validity is demonstrated by way of application to soil samples collected from a burned dune area and a late Quaternary marine sediment.
