It is unclear whether the Darling scarp is a rapidly evolving landform responding to recent tectonic and/or climatic forcing or a more slowly evolving landform. In order to quantify late Quaternary rates of erosion and scarp relief processes, the AA. obtained measurements of the cosmic-ray produced nuclide beryllium-10 (10Be) from outcropping bedrock surfaces along the scarp summit and face, in valley floors, and at stream knickpoints. Results and discussion. Cosmogenic 10Be analysis provides a useful tool for interpreting the palaeoseismic history of intraplate near-fault landforms over 100 kyr to 10 million years
