Abstract

This paper proposes, as a testable hypothesis, a basin-scale approach for interpreting the abundance of in situ produced cosmogenic isotopes, an approach which considers explicitly both the isotope and sediment flux through a drainage basin. This model is designed for interpreting isotope abundance in sediment. The AA. suggest that measured isotope abundances may reflect spatially averaged rates of erosion if a basin is in isotopic steady state and if sampled sediments are well mixed
