For C we are still in development mode, so it is not possible to estimate the quene time.

Contact John Gosse for quene times, costs, and other submission questions.

This provides an ideal method for determining when a glacier retreated from a region, hence exposing the ground beneath.

Surface exposure dating using terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides (TCN) is an established and reliable method to date landforms and has been applied for dating glacial advances and retreats, erosion history, lava flows, meteorite impacts, fault scarps, and other geological events.

Within landslide studies, NGU applies TCN dating to determine ages of rockslide events and the age of sliding surfaces in order to determine past long-term displacement rates Earth is constantly bombarded with cosmic rays that are high-energy charged particles.

The Cosmogenic Isotope Lab is one of three facilities in Canada that are currently producing cosmogenic nuclide targets, and one of only four facilities in the world to prepare targets for all four cosmogenic radionuclides (CL) used for Earth Surface Processes research.

We do not do radiocarbon dating of organic materials such as bone, plants, artifacts, or art work.

I collected the samples in the field in 20: Having collected the samples in the field and received funding to run them, I went up to the Scottish Universities Environmental Reserach Centre (SUERC) laboratories in East Kilbride to start the process!
