Measurements of cosmogenic nuclide formation in samples by gamma counting and accelerator mass spectrometry
Entry ID: K112_1997_2000_NZ_1

Abstract: The rates of production of 10Be, 26Al and 36Cl in situ by the action of cosmic rays on rocks is essential for accurate cosmogenic isotope dating of exposed surfaces in Antarctica and elsewhere in the world. These nuclides are mainly generated by neutron bombardment and used for dating glacial moraines, uplifted terraces and fault zones via the surface exposure dating. As a proxy for in situ ...
