I suppose your two files are georeferenced.

1) Create projected location using the "create new location 
using...georeferenced file"

2) Import both files with r.in.gdal (File->Import raster maps->Multiple 
formats with gdal)

3) Several possibilities for extracting your information
	- Use 'r.stats -n1  input=Age,Depth' to extract the values pixel by 
pixel (use the command line as this can crash your GUI if you have large 
	- Use r.coin (Raster -> Reports and statistics-> Mutual category 
occurrences (coincidence)) to get the matrix of coincidence;
	- You also have r.regression.line to calculate the regression 
coefficients between the two, and r.covar to calculate 
covariance/correlation coefficients.

4) Use whatever graphics software you want to make a graph out of this
