  1. Please see Fig. 2 for location of sample sites
  2. aTopographic shielding factors were calculated after Mudd et al. (2016)
  3. bAnnual snow data from Auer (2003) and empirical relationship derived from Jonas et al. (2009) were used to calculate the snow shielding
  4. cDenudation rates were calculated using the CAIRN routine (Mudd et al. 2016)
  5. dApparent ages were calculated using an apparent attenuation depth of 60 cm
