Exposure ages of glacial deposits, South Shetland Islands

[ Update this Record ]

Abstract: This data set contains cosmogenic nuclide exposure ages for glacial deposits on Livingston and King George Islands, in the South Shetlands archipelago. The majority come from moraines on the northwest shore of Hurd Peninsula, Livingston Island. A second group comes from the shores of Marion Cove, on King George Island. The ages are based on concentrations of the cosmogenic nuclides Be-10 and Cl-36, and are calculated using the production rates and associated data indicated in the footnotes. The data set includes all chemical and isotopic data needed to recompute the exposure ages if nuclide production rates or correction factors are revised in future.
