Desert landscape processes on a timescale of millions of years, probed by cosmogenic nuclides

Fujioka, Toshiyuki; Chappell, John

Description

Since their inception, cosmogenic nuclide methods have enhanced our understanding of Earth's surface processes by providing a basis for directly determining surface exposure times and erosion rates of landscape elements. The ability to measure exposure ages up to several million years and erosion rates as low as a decimetre per million years means that the method is particularly useful for environments where landscapes change very slowly, such as deserts in tectonically stable regions. In this...[Show more]
