Interpreting erosion rates from cosmogenic radionuclide concentrations measured in rapidly eroding terrain


A combination of numerical analysis and Be 10 concentrations measured in sediment samples from the high-relief Torrente catchment, southern Spain, allows to investigate the sampling requirements for determining erosion rates using cosmogenic nuclides in high-relief, landslide-dominated terrain. The AA. use simple modelling to quantify the effect of particle spalling and/or landsliding on erosion rates determined using a cosmogenic in-situ produced isotope. Lastly, they present erosion rate measurements from the Torrente catchment that reveal variations of two orders of magnitude quantifying the high degree of spatial variation in erosion rates expected within rapidly uplifting catchments
