  1. Reported blank ratio and concentration are referenced to S2007N (Kubik and Christl 2010). AMS measurement errors are at 1σ level, including the statistical (counting) error and the error due to normalization of standards and blanks. The error weighted average 10Be/9Be full process blank ratio is (3.13 ± 0.34) × 10−15. Exposure ages are calculated with the CRONUS-Earth exposure age calculator (http://hess.ess.washington.edu/math/; v. 2.2; Balco et al. 2008 and update from v. 2.1 to v. 2.2 published by Balco in October 2009 using preliminary CRONUS/UW production rate calibration data set) and time dependent (Lal 1991; Stone2000) scaling model. The uncertainties reported in parentheses also include the production rate error. A half-live of 1.39 Ma for 10Be (Korschinek et al. 2010; Chmeleff et al. 2010) is used for the age calculations
