Cosmogenic nuclides are the products of nuclear reactions between cosmic rays and elements in atmosphere and lithosphere on earth. Their production is the function of geomagnetic field intensity, surface exposure times and erosion rates. The measurements of multiple cosmogenic isotopes in sediment, such as fluvial terraces and cave sediments, also allow us to calculate deposition ages of the sediment. As such cosmogenic nuclide dating has become indispensable in earth sciences, particularly, in the field of geomorphology and landscape evolution over the last few decades.
10Be for Surface exposure dating (SED)
Dating of the basal ice using physical and biological methods – University of Copenhagen
Greg Balco Charles W. We describe an improved method for dating buried paleosols using measurements of the cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides 10Be and 26Al in quartz grains, and apply it to a sequence of intercalated tills and paleosols in central Missouri, USA, that record Plio-Pleistocene advances of the Laurentide Ice Sheet. A buried paleosol implies a period of surface exposure and nuclide accumulation, followed by burial and a halt to nuclide production. If the paleosol is formed in a sedimentary unit such as till, this unit may also have been emplaced with unknown 26Al and 10Be concentrations inherited from past surface exposure. If the inherited nuclide concentrations are the same at all depths in the soil—as is true for well-mixed sediments such as till—then the 26Al and 10Be concentrations at different depths in the paleosol will show a linear relationship. The slope of this line depends on the duration of burial of the paleosol, but not on the inherited nuclide concentrations or on the sample depths.

Sediment dating with 137Cs

Using cosmogenic nuclides in glacial geology Sampling strategies cosmogenic nuclide dating Difficulties in cosmogenic nuclide dating Calculating an exposure age Further Reading References Comments. Cosmogenic nuclide dating can be used to determine rates of ice-sheet thinning and recession, the ages of moraines, and the age of glacially eroded bedrock surfaces. For glaciation, the most common application of cosmogenic nuclide dating is to date the exposure age of glacially transported rocks. It tells us how long the rocks have been located at the surface, for example, on a moraine.
