  1. aProduction rates by high-energy spallation are calculated following Stone (2000) for altitudinal and latitudinal scaling. This is the most commonly used scaling scheme in the existing literature. The scaling factor is a function of atmospheric pressure and geographic latitude; bproduction rates by slow and fast muons are calculated according to Braucher et al. (2011); cmean altitudes of the catchments are calculated by ArcGIS for production rates of fluvial sediments.
