Abstract
    The fallout radionuclides 210Pb and 137Cs have been extensively used to calculate rates of sediment accumulation and provide estimates of age with depth in a sediment column. Developing a geochronology based on these isotopes requires some basic understanding of the environment in which the samples were collected. This chapter provides the background to the application of these two sedimentological tracers and a quantitative description of the widely applied models in the downcore interpretation of the activity profiles, including some discussion of potential pitfalls in the sampling, analysis, and interpretive processes
