This Handbook is a new comprehensive reference of the methodologies (field, laboratory and desk work) for using radionuclides, primarily 137Cs and210Pb, to establish rates and spatial patterns of soil redistribution within the landscape and determine the geochronology of sediment deposits. It is based on the recent developments made by a global network of research scientists working on soil erosion and sedimentation research using environmental radionuclides.
