Abstract

Erosion patterns associated with glaciation of trunk and hanging valley systems in northern Sweden were investigated using cosmogenic nuclide Be 10 apparent exposure ages and inferred nuclide inheritance. Although quantifying the amount of erosion depends on the assumed cosmogenic nuclide inheritance prior to the onset of erosion, the pattern of erosion is independent of this. Hence the observed pattern of cosmogenic nuclide concentrations provides constraints on spatial patterns of erosion and helps to refine understanding of the timing and extent of landform modification by glaciation
