The century-long debate over the origins of inner gorges that were repeatedly covered by Quaternary glaciers hinges upon whether the gorges are fluvial forms eroded by subaerial rivers, or subglacial forms cut beneath ice. Here we apply cosmogenic nuclide exposure dating to seven inner gorges along ~500 km of the former Fennoscandian ice sheet margin in(More)
Stony deserts are durable indicators of aridity but until now have not been directly dated. Using 21Ne and 10Be produced in surface rocks by cosmic rays, we show that Australian stony deserts formed 2–4 Ma, at the time when global cooling initiated the Quaternary ice ages and intensified aridity-induced major landscape changes in central Australia.
