      Temporal variations of cosmogenic radionuclide atmospheric concentrations can be caused by such global phenomena as solar activity and geomagnetic field changes as well as atmospheric circulation processes. These causes can be distinguished by the comparison of several isotope records corresponding to the same time period. We discuss a possibility for reconstructing the geomagnetic moment during the last 30,000 years from the comparison of 10Be and 14C concentrations in terrestrial archives. The results agree with conventional paleomagnetic data and promise to enrich our knowledge of geomagnetic field variations and reversals.
