The rays react with the rock and over time form tiny amounts of the rare chemical isotope beryllium-10.
The researchers analyzed the samples using a surface exposure dating technique - measuring the tiny amounts of the chemical isotope beryllium-10 that is formed as cosmic rays bombard exposed surfaces - to place very precise dates on these relatively young glacial fluctuations.
Graduates of this direction have broad knowledge in the field of chemical isotope analysis, electrochemical and electrical analysis, mass spectrometry.
