We successfully apply exposure dating using cosmogenic nuclides to natural terrain landslides in Hong Kong. Forty-five samples from eight landslide sites were exposure dated using 10Be, and a subset of six samples was also dated using 26Al. The sites comprised four large, deep-seated landslides featuring well-preserved rock scarps and associated debris lobes; two sites of rock and boulder fall; and two sites where scarps only are preserved. All of the deep-seated landslides gave ages within the last 50,000 yr, and the largest landslide gave an age of ∼32,000 yr. The youngest (∼2000 yr) and oldest (∼57,000 yr) landslide...
