Abstract

The AA. describe how measurements of the cosmic-ray-produced radionuclides Be 10 and Al 26 in alluvial sediment can be used to develop a continuous record of erosion rate changes through time. The AA. illustrate the method, and evaluate its uncertainty and thus usefulness in realistic situations, with an example from a middle Pleistocene alluvial section in Fisher Valley, Utah. Finally, they suggest how it might best be employed in future to answer questions about the relationship of climate, tectonics, and landscape evolution
