Abstract [en]

We present a new regional calibration of the 10Be production rate from two well-dated surfaces insouthern Norway: a rock avalanche with 14C-dated wood and a precisely dated Younger Dryas moraine. Calculated10Be production rates are 4.260.13 and 4.650.14 at g1 a1 for the Lal/Stone and Lifton scaling models,respectively. Our regional production rate for southern Norway is 5% lower than the canonical global 10Be productionrate with lower uncertainties. Our 10Be production rate agrees with regional 10Be production rates from north-easternNorth America and New Zealand. The 10Be production rate estimate presented here can be used to improve theprecision and accuracy of exposure-dated ice-marginal features, as well as other surfaces, in northern Europe.
