Exposure ages of glacial deposits in the Prince Charles Mountains, East Antarctica
Entry ID: PCM_EXP_AGES1

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of exposure ages for glacial deposits and
glaciated bedrock surfaces in the Prince Charles Mountains, East
Antarctica. Most samples come from moraines deposited during the last
glacial maximum, approximately 12,000 - 20,000 yr B.P. The ages are
based on concentrations of the cosmic-ray-produced nuclides Be-10,
Al-26 and Cl-36. The primary data are sample locations and exposure
ages. Ages are calculated using currently accepted nuclide production
rates and correction factors. The data set also contains all details
of the chemical and isotopic analyses needed to re-compute exposure
ages if nuclide production rates or correction factors are revised in
future.
