Summary
Abstract: Separate regions within the Transantarctic Mountains, the uplifted flank of the
West Antarctic rift system, appear to have distinct Neogene histories of
glaciation and valley downcutting. Incision of deep glacial outlet valleys
occurred at different times throughout central and northern Victoria Land. This
is corroborated by measurements of cosmogenic nuclides 21Ne, 10Be and 26Al of
glacial ... View entire text

Quality For surface exposure dating quartz samples have been collected from
glacial striated erosion surfaces for which we assumed zero erosion
following first exposure.

Samples were routinely processed for 10Be and 26Al tandem accelerator
mass spectrometry (ETH Z|rich) and 21Ne noble gas mass spectrometry
(VU Amsterdam).

Altitudes were measured above sea level.
