Abstract

Geomorphologists have considered Australian landscapes among the most stable and ancient in the world. In order to evaluate this hypothesis quantitatively, the AA. collected samples from exposed granitic inselbergs on the semiarid, Eyre Peninsula, south-central Australia, for analysis of the in situ-produced cosmogenic nuclides, Be-10 and Al-26. Results suggest that the tops of Eyre Peninsula granitic inselbergs are eroding at an exceptionally slow rate and that some Eyre Peninsula inselbergs are probably relict features of pre-Pleistocene landscapes
