Cosmogenic Nuclides Laboratory frequently asked questions

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 (10Be, 14C, 26Al, 36Cl)

Cosmogenic nuclides are used to determine exposure ages and erosion rates of landforms and sediments, and exhumation rates of catchment basins.
