Burbank a, Robert C. Most previous studies focused on individual glaciated valleys, whereas our Received in revised form study compares chronologies developed throughout the range to identify regional patterns in the timing 24 November of glacier response to major climate changes. The penultimate glacial retreat occurred at ca ka. Deposits of previously recognized glaciations between Be circa 25 and ka, e.

Cosmogenic exposure dating of glacial boulders is commonly used to estimate the timing of past glaciations because the method enables direct dating of the duration a boulder has been exposed to cosmic rays. For successful dating, the boulders must have been fully shielded from cosmic rays prior to deposition and continuously exposed to cosmic rays ever since. A common assumption is that boulder height the distance between the top of the boulder and the surrounding surface is important, and that tall boulders are more likely to have been continuously exposed to cosmic rays than short boulders and therefore yield more accurate exposure ages.

Late Quaternary glaciation of the Tianshan, Central Asia, using cosmogenic Be-10 surface exposure dating. Quaternary Research, 72(2),
Abstract The retreat history of the Antarctic Ice Sheet is important for understanding rapid deglaciation, as well as to constrain numerical ice sheet models and ice loading models required for glacial isostatic adjustment modelling. There is particular debate about the extent of grounded ice in the Weddell Sea embayment at the Last Glacial Maximum, and its subsequent deglacial history. Here we provide a new dataset of geomorphological observations and cosmogenic nuclide surface exposure ages of erratic samples that constrain the deglacial history of the Pensacola Mountains, adjacent to the present day Foundation Ice Stream and Academy Glacier in the southern Weddell Sea embayment.
We show there is evidence of at least two glaciations, the first of which was relatively old and warm-based, and a more recent cold-based glaciation. Progressive thinning from these sites was well underway by 10 ka BP and ice reached present levels by 2. The thinning history is consistent with, but does not mandate, a Late Holocene retreat of the grounding line to a smaller-than-present configuration, as has been recently hypothesized based on ice sheet and glacial isostatic modelling. The data also show that clasts with complex exposure histories are pervasive and that clast recycling is highly site-dependent.

Comparative numerical surface exposure-age dating Be and Schmidt hammer of an early-Holocene rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway. T1 – Comparative numerical surface exposure-age dating Be and Schmidt hammer of an early-Holocene rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway. N2 – Application of calibrated Schmidt-hammer surface-exposure dating SHD to the run-out debris of a rock avalanche at Alstadfjellet, Valldalen, southern Norway, has yielded ages that are consistent within uncertainties with terrestrial cosmogenic 10Be surface-exposure ages for the debris.
Three SHD calibration equations were generated based on different correction factors for the 10Be ages from the moraines. The SHD ages In addition, the former ages have a precision of 1. This work demonstrates that calibrated SHD can be of comparable accuracy to and may have improved precision over 10Be ages, and should be given greater consideration and prominence in Quaternary dating studies.

This Project will gather information regarding the deglaciation of Hornsund, Svalbard. This will be done by cosmogenic exposure dating, Be, of boulders or blocks from the area. Boulders at Treskelen have already been sampeled du. As we would like you to know a bit about what is going on in Svalbard in your discipline and fieldwork surroundings, we have selected some projects that should be interesting for you to have a look at.
As we all work to reduce our environmental footprint, we want to give you an easy way to find projects that have fieldwork close to you, so you can contact the project owner and coordinate your logistics whenever possible. Boulders at Treskelen have already been sampeled during the summer of This area is on the northern side of the fjord, and there is in addition a site to the South of the fjord that would be desirable to sample for comparison of results.

This award supports a project to determine if the West Antarctic Ice Sheet WAIS has thinned and collapsed in the past few million years, and if so, when and how frequently this occurred. The principal aim is to identify climatic conditions or thresholds in the climate system that led to ice-sheet collapse in the past, and assess the threat of climate change to vulnerable ice sheets in the future.
We recovered a subglacial bedrock core from beneath m of ice cover in the Pirrit Hills, in West Antarctica, and measured cosmogenic nuclide profiles to determine the bedrock exposure history.

Recently there has been more than the usual amount of attention to cosmic-ray-produced Ne, including a bunch of new production rate estimates Goethals, Niedermann, others; Balco and Shuster; Amidon, Farley, others. Ne is a potentially extremely useful cosmogenic nuclide for a couple of reasons, the main ones being as follows. First, like Al and Be, it is produced in quartz, which means that: i because quartz is so common, it is nearly always possible to apply Ne measurements in your area; and ii it is potentially useful for multiple-nuclide applications with Al and Be Second, it is relatively easy to measure with a standard noble gas mass spectrometer such as one might use for argon dating or helium thermochronometry.
This makes for a cheaper, faster, and more accessible measurement than accelerator mass spectrometry, and opens the possibility of projects like the Codilean paper noted above that involve enough measurements on individual clasts, surfaces, etc. Ne is also a pain in the neck, for a couple of reasons. The most important one is that nearly all minerals contain significant amounts of non-cosmogenic Ne Thus, it is not enough to just quantify the total amount of Ne in a mineral sample — you also have to determine how much of the Ne is actually cosmogenic in origin, and how much is either trapped or nucleogenic.
This requires measurement of all three Ne isotopes, that is, Ne, Ne, and Ne, and deconvolution of the various Ne components based on the isotope ratios of Ne produced in various ways. This, in turn, is complicated to various extents, depending on your mass spectrometer by isobaric interferences on both mass 20 doubly charged Ar and 22 doubly charged carbon dioxide.
So actually measuring all three Ne isotopes is not that big a problem.
