Rates of Quaternary Ice Movement Across the Vestfold Hills from Exposure Age Dating.
Entry ID: ASAC_831

Abstract: The data set consist of in-situ cosmogenic Be-10 and Al-26 surface exposure ages for subglacial erratics in the Vestfold Hills.

Samples were collected during the 1994/95 summer season and processed at the research School of Earth Sciences, ANU. Al-26/Al-27 and Be-10/Be-9 ratios were measured using the 14UD accelerator mass spectrometer at the Research School of Physical Sciences and Engineering, ... View entire text
