Summary
Abstract: This data set consists of cosmogenic nuclide concentrations in samples from
bedrock surfaces in the Ford Ranges, Marie Byrd Land, West Antarctica. These
surfaces have been exposed by ice retreat since the last glacial maximum,
approximately 10,500 years ago. However, the majority of samples contain
nuclide concentrations indicating much longer and more complicated exposure
