The production rate of cosmogenic He in apatite, zircon, kyanite and garnet was obtained by cross-calibration against Be in co-existing quartz in glacial moraine boulders from the Nepalese Himalaya. The boulders have Be ages between 6 and 16 kyr and span elevations from 3200 to 4800 m. In all of these minerals He correlates with Be and is dominantly… CONTINUE READING
