Abstract

New radiocarbon ages for Sierra Nevada deglaciation, the first Be-10 measurements from the Laurentide terminal moraine, and calculations based on paleomagnetic field strength have the potential to substantially improve the accuracy of cosmogenic age estimates. The variety and magnitude of systematic uncertainties, illustrated by data and calculations, currently prohibit rigorous cosmogenic dating or correlation of short-lived events such as the Younger Dryas climatic reversal or North Atlantic Heinrich events
