The ability of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) to measure very small concentrations of the nuclides 10 Be, 14 C, 26 Al, 36 Cl, and 129 I has led to many innovative applications in geologic research. To take advantage of this opportunity in the geosciences, it is important to understand how AMS works, how these nuclides are produced, and how they can be applied to geologic problems. We first discuss the basics of AMS, explaining what gives the method its ability to count small numbers of… CONTINUE READING
