The CRONUS-EU joint work programme aims at the advancement of TCN techniques in Europe into a robust tool for Earth surface and environmental sciences.

The objective of the CRONUS-Earth Project is to simultaneously address the various uncertainties affecting the production and accumulation of in-situ cosmogenic nuclides, with the goal of producing a widely accepted and internally consistent set of parameters that can be used in calculating ages and erosion rates.

The site of John Stone and colleagues explains some of the background to their work and provides an overview of cosmogenic isotope research at the University of Washington. It also serves as a repository for data generated by the group, descriptions of their lab procedures, technical information and calculation methods.

The site of John Gosse provides the basic principles and examples of application of terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide exposure history methods.

Derek Fabel is responsible for a site of the CfG-CNL at the Scottish Universities Environmental Research Centre (SUERC), East Kilbride. At the laboratory in-situ produced terrestrial cosmogenic nuclides are extracted from rocks and sediment for analysis by accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS).  You will find a more detailed description of terrestrial cosmogenic nuclide methods.

At ANU AMS is performed. Research projects involving cosmogenic nuclides such as "Glacial geology and climate change", "Geochronology of volcanic landscapes", "Cosmogenic nuclide production rates" are presented.
