Cosmogenic radionuclides : theory and applications in the terrestrial and space environments

Author: Jürg Beer; K G McCracken; R von Steiger
Publisher: Heidelberg ; New York : Springer, ©2012.
Series: Physics of earth and space environments.
Edition/Format:   eBook : Document : EnglishView all editions and formats
Summary:
Cosmogenic radionuclides are radioactive isotopes which are produced by natural processes and distributed within the Earth system. With a holistic view of the environment the authors show in this book how cosmogenic radionuclides can be used to trace and to reconstruct the history of a large variety of processes. They discuss the way in which cosmogenic radionuclides can assist in the quantification of complex  Read more...
