[Lionel Siame; Didier L Bourlès; Erik T Brown;] -- "In situ-produced cosmogenic nuclides can provide chronologies of environmental change over the past few thousand to several millions of years and may be used to quantify a wide range of weathering. Jason P. Briner, John C. Gosse, Paul R. Bierman, "Applications of cosmogenic nuclides to Laurentide Ice Sheet history and dynamics", In Situ-Produced Cosmogenic Nuclides and Quantification of Geological Processes, Ana María Alonso-Zarza, Lawrence H. TannerCited by:   The cosmogenic nuclide exposure history method is undergoing major developments in analytical, theoretical, and applied areas. The capability to routinely measure low concentrations of stable and radioactive cosmogenic nuclides has led to new methods for addressing long-standing geologic questions and has provided insights into rates and styles of surficial processes.

  1. Introduction. Analyses of in situ-produced cosmogenic nuclides, especially 10 Be (T 1/2 =×10 6 yr) and 26 Al (T 1/2 =×10 5 yr) produced in quartz, have revolutionized our approach to the dating of landforms and determining the rates of earth surface processes (Gosse and Phillips, ).The application of the cosmogenic nuclide methods in geomorphology has altered our .   1. Introduction. In-situ produced cosmogenic nuclides have proved to be a valuable tool for environmental and Earth sciences (Gosse and Phillips, ).Progress in the field of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) allows the determination of radionuclide concentrations as low as of 10 4 atoms/(g rock), which makes quantifying terrestrial exposure histories possible. The application of in‐situ produced cosmogenic isotopes to problems in geomorphology has increased rapidly over the past decade. At least 57 papers and numerous abstracts have been published since the mid‐s when the first mass‐spectrometric measurements of terrestrially produced cosmogenic isotopes were made.   L.L.

Measurement of in situ–produced cosmogenic radionuclides (CRNs) enables a level of quantification that would otherwise be impossible or fraught with uncertainty and expense. Remarkable success stories punctuate the field over the last decade as CRN-based methodologies are pushed to new limits.
