Eroding Australia: rates and processes from Bega Valley to Arnhem Land

Heimsath, Arjun M.; Chappell, John; Fifield, L Keith


We report erosion rates determined from in situ produced cosmogenic 10Be across a spectrum of Australian climatic zones, from the soil-mantled SE Australian escarpment through semi-arid bedrock ranges of southern and central Australia, to soil-mantled ridges at a monsoonal tropical site near the Arnhem escarpment. Climate has a major effect on the balance between erosion and transport and also on erosion rate: the highest rates, averaging 35 m Ma -1, were from soil-mantled, transport-limited...[Show more]
