Multiple cosmogenic nuclides with different decay rates can be used to date exposure and burial of rocks over the timescales of radioactive decay. This paper reviews the development of such dating methods over the past ∼50 years, beginning with a historical perspective on early meteorite studies, and later focusing on recent examples in the terrestrial field using the 26Al-10Be pair in quartz.

Two classes of terrestrial applications are discussed in detail. The first involves the use of 26Al and 10Be in rock or sediment that has experienced a complex history of repeated exposure and burial....
