Abstract [en]

Cosmogenic isotope burial dating, using 10Be and 26Al, was applied to PlioePleistocene fluvial successionsfrom the Lower Rhine Embayment, Germany. The approach consists of three principal steps: (1)measurement of cosmogenic nuclides in depth profiles, (2) modelling of hypothetical nuclide concentrationsbased on a first-order conceptualisation of the geological context and the principal succession ofdepositions and subsequent erosional and burial phases, and (3) using parameter estimation to identifyvalues for the a priori unknown model parameters (burial age, initial nuclide concentrations, terraceerosion rates) that result in minimal disagreement between hypothetical and measured nuclideconcentrations.
