Only the ages of lower terraces were previously delimited by 14C. The highest elevation terraces T 8 , T 9 were sampled for cosmogenic 26AlBe burial dating to delimit the ages of previously identified faults, and possibly locate evidence of faults that may displace the terraces. Samples were collected from four locations 5 samples in each location, 20 samples total on both the north and south sides of the reservoir near previously identified faults. Session No. These faults have NE-striking, SE-dipping orientations, contain characteristic red sandy clay-filled fault gouge, and are a part of deformation zone.

We use the cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides 26Al and 10Be to date Plio-Pleistocene glacial sediment sequences. These two nuclides are produced in quartz at a fixed ratio, but have different decay constants. We first attempted to date pre-Wisconsinan tills by measuring 26Al and 10Be in fluvial sediments beneath them and applying the method of “burial dating,” which previous authors have used to date river sediment carried into caves.
Here, we report the first application of a radio-isotopic dating method to the site. The reliability of this age is supported by the zero age of modern fluvial sediment near the cave. Our result is consistent with the age estimation based on biostratigraphic correlation and supports the argument that the Yiyuan and Zhoukoudian Locality 1 H.

Geologists taking rock samples in Antarctica for cosmogenic nuclide dating. They use a hammer and chisel to sample the upper few centimetres of the rock.
Cosmogenic nuclide dating can be used to determine rates of ice-sheet thinning and recession, the ages of moraines, and the age of glacially eroded bedrock surfaces. It is an excellent way of directly dating glaciated regions. It is particularly useful in Antarctica, because of a number of factors:. Cosmogenic nuclide dating is effective over short to long timescales 1,,, years , depending on which isotope you are dating.
Different isotopes are used for different lengths of times. This long period of applicability is an added advantage of cosmogenic nuclide dating. Cosmogenic nuclide dating is effective for timescales from ,, years.

Diarmad G. N2 – We successfully apply exposure dating using cosmogenic nuclides to natural terrain landslides in Hong Kong. Forty-five samples from eight landslide sites were exposure dated using 10Be, and a subset of six samples was also dated using 26Al. The sites comprised four large, deep-seated landslides featuring well-preserved rock scarps and associated debris lobes; two sites of rock and boulder fall; and two sites where scarps only are preserved.

The interaction of cosmic radiation with terrestrial matter leads to the in-situ production of cosmogenic nuclides in the exposed surface material. Accelerator mass spectrometry AMS enables us to quantitatively measure trace concentrations of in-situ produced radionuclides like 10 Be and 26 Al. This ultimately allows the determination of surface exposure ages, erosion rates and other processes of landscape evolution.
The availability of a pure and well defined mineral sample is an important prerequisite for surface exposure dating. As the samples taken in the field usually do consist of many different mineral components, a quartz separation technique has to be employed. We present a chemical mineral separation that allows the isolation of a pure quartz fraction, which is quantitatively decontaminated from the atmospheric 10 Be contamination lying on the sample.
The journal is geared toward scientists who are actively engaged in research work.

This proposal seeks funding for measurement of the cosmogenic radionuclides 26Al and 10Be in quartz from core and outcrop of Plio-Pleistocene sediment within and near Unaweep Canyon. The Plio-Pleistocene sediments were newly mapped in , and the core was collected in Our preliminary data indicate that Unaweep Canyon is a Paleozoic landform buried by later Paleozoic and Mesozoic sediments and then re-exhumed during the Cenozoic, a controversial claim.

Darryl E. Granger, Multiple cosmogenic nuclides with different decay rates can be used to date exposure and burial of rocks over the timescales of radioactive decay. Two classes of terrestrial applications are discussed in detail. The first involves the use of 26 Al and 10 Be in rock or sediment that has experienced a complex history of repeated exposure and burial. In these cases, the cosmogenic nuclides can only provide a minimum near-surface age. Examples include sediment from beneath desert sand dunes, and rocks from beneath cold-based glaciers.
The second class of application uses 26 Al and 10 Be to date discrete burial events, in cases where sediment has experienced a simple history of exposure followed by rapid burial.

The Xujiayao-Houjiayao site in Nihewan Basin is among the most important Paleolithic sites in China for having provided a rich collection of hominin and mammalian fossils and lithic artifacts. Based on biostratigraphical correlation and exploratory results from a variety of dating methods, the site has been widely accepted as early Upper Pleistocene in time.
Two quartz samples from a lower cultural horizon give a weighted mean age of 0.

Competing interests: The authors have declared that no competing interests exist. While the first stone artifacts were discovered at the former locality, it is from the latter locality that an overwhelming majority of th e archaeological materials have been recovered, which include 19 hominin fossils traditionally assigned to archaic Homo sapiens , more than 30, lithic artifacts and an abundance of mammalian fossils [ 1 — 5 ].
Almost all of the publications and chronological studies have dealt with the latter locality. This explains why the site was initially named Xujiayao, but later renamed Xujiayao-Houjiayao by the State Administration of Cultural Heritage of China and simply as Houjiayao by the archaeologists in Hebei Province.
