Sediment mixing and basin-wide cosmogenic nuclide analysis in rapidly eroding mountainous environments

Binnie, Steven A.; Phillips, William M.; Summerfield, Michael; Fifield, L Keith


Cosmogenic nuclide concentrations in alluvial sediments have been widely used to estimate basin-wide denudation rates. This technique requires that sediments be well mixed so as to avoid biasing results towards particular source locations within the basin. However, few studies have tested for well-mixed sediment with cosmogenic nuclide data. We examine sediment mixing with measurements of in situ-produced cosmogenic 10Be in alluvium from small, high-relief catchments in the San Bernardino...[Show more]
