Description

Terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides (TCNs) such as Beryllium-10 (¹⁰Be) are now routinely used to reconstruct erosional rates over tens of thousands of years at increasingly large basin scales (> 100,000 km²). In Australia, however, the approach and its assumptions have not been systematically tested within a single, large drainage basin. This study measures ¹⁰Be concentrations in river sediments from the Burdekin catchment, one of Australia's largest coastal catchments, to determine long-term (>...[Show more]
