During the Pinedale (Late Wisconsinan) glaciation, an outlet glacier from a mountain ice field flowed eastward across the Continental Divide through Marias Pass in northwestern Montana. This outlet glacier was the major source of the Two Medicine glacier, a large piedmont glacier that extended from the mountain front east about 55 km onto the plains. An accelerator mass spectrometry radiocarbon age of 12 194 ± 145 BP (AA-9530) was obtained from a wood fragment, underlying a Glacier Peak tephra and a Mount Saint Helens set J tephra in a section of lake sediments, near Marias Pass. This radiocarbon age provides a minimum date of deglaciation for the Marias Pass area that is about 800 years older than a previous estimate. Furthermore, the radiocarbon age indicates that the Two Medicine glacier was no longer being supplied by its major source and if it still existed was only as a dying, stagnant ice mass. ...
Radiocarbon (C-14) ages obtained from planktic foraminiferal calcite are a mainstay for reconstructing ocean-climate change and carbon cycle dynamics of the past 30 k.y., yet the effects of diagenesis on this vital chronometer are poorly constrained. Here, we address this shortcoming by comparing C-14 ages and trace element ratios (Mg/Ca, Mn/Ca) of planktic foraminifera with white, opaque shells deemed well preserved by traditional standards to those with exquisitely preserved translucent shells. Results support a diagenetic mechanism as opaque shells yield C-14 ages invariably older and trace element ratios consistently higher than those of translucent shells. Radiocarbon age offsets are particularly pronounced in mono-specific samples taken from stratigraphic horizons proximal to the delta O-18 maximum marking the Last Glacial Maximum (LGM) and the subsequent deglacial. Radiocarbon-based calendar ages of translucent shells from the two intervals are congruent with the established age ranges ...
Abstract. The calibration of a radiocarbon age to a calendar date is reviewed. It is shown that the commonly-used programs for calibration sometimes give results that are significantly in error. ...

The discovery of new fossils in Africa, Asia, and Europe, and the recognition of a greater diversity in the middle Pleistocene fossil record, has led to a reconsideration of the species Homo heidelbergensis. This nomen, formulated by Schoetensack in 1908 to describe the Mauer jaw (Germany), was almost forgotten during most of the past century. Numerous fossils have been attributed to it but no consensus has arisen concerning their classification. The holotype anatomical traits are still poorly understood, and numerous fossils with no mandibular remains have been placed in the taxon. Some researchers propose H. heidelbergensis as an Afro-European taxon that is ancestral to both modern humans and Neandertals whereas others think it is a strictly European species that is part of the Neandertal lineage. We focus on the validity of H. heidelbergensis, using the traditional basis of species recognition: anatomical description. We provide a comparative morphological analysis using 47 anatomical traits ...
Radiocarbon refers to a radioactive isotope of carbon. Neutrons from sunrays collide with nitrogen in Earths upper atmosphere to form radiocarbon, which steadily emits beta particles until it all reverts to stable nitrogen. The calculated shelf life for radiocarbon atoms does not exceed 100,000 years. Thus, detectable radiocarbon within a given sample would become nitrogen before then.1. Scientists expect no radiocarbon in samples they deem older than 100,000 years. Most dating experts call these materials "carbon dead" regardless of their actual radiocarbon content. Then they use low (but not dead) radiocarbon materials as background blanks.2 Most results on this chart show fewer than 47,000 carbon years-the age of many labs background blanks. Thus, nearly 60 samples of fossils (mostly bone), wood, coal, and marble not only fail to fit their evolutionary ages, but they have more radiocarbon than the supposedly carbon- depleted background.. Scientists expect no radiocarbon in samples they deem ...

CLEVELAND -- Joe Mauer left Sundays 6-3 victory over the Indians with a mild right thumb sprain and is listed as day to day. Mauer, serving as the designated hitter, left the game when Darin Mastroianni pinch-hit for him to lead off the ninth inning. Mauer said he injured his thumb on a foul ball on a 1-2 count before he eventually struck out against reliever Nick Hagadone in the seventh. "I fouled a pitch back and I felt it," Mauer said. "It was a little worse on that last pitch, too. But its only day to day, which is good." Mauer added that it wasnt a re-aggravation of an old injury, as it was the first time he felt any discomfort in his thumb all season. "It was just that one at-bat," Mauer said. "I went down after and tried to swing and it was barking at me pretty good. So we decided to get some ice on it to help with the swelling." Mauer went 1-for-3 on the day, with an RBI single in the first inning. He walked and scored in the third and flied out to center in the fifth. Mauer has ...
How They Survived: There is evidence that H. heidelbergensis was capable of controlling fire by building hearths, or early fireplaces, by 790,000 years ago in the form of fire-altered tools and burnt wood at the site of Gesher Benot Ya-aqov in Israel. Social groups probably often gathered around their hearths sharing food, stay warm, and ward off predators. H. heidelbergensis probably took advantage of natural shelters but this species was also the first to build simple shelters. Evidence for this comes from the site of Terra Amata, France. H. heidelbergensis was also the first hunter of large game animals; remains of animals such as wild deer, horses, elephants, hippos, and rhinos with butchery marks on their bones have been found together at sites with H. heidelbergensis fossils. Evidence for this also comes from 400,000 year old wooden spears found at the site of Schöningen, Germany, which were found together with stone tools and the remains of more than 10 butchered horses.. One site in ...
Direct radiocarbon dating of the Neandertal femoral diaphysis from the Rochers-de-Villeneuve (Lussac-les-Châteaux, Vienne) has yielded an age of 45,200 ± 1,100 14C years B.P. (OxA-15257) [48,455 ± 1,878 cal. years B.P.], and stable isotope values of δ13C = - 19.0‰ and δ15N = 11.6‰. The direct radiocarbon date makes it the oldest directly dated European Neandertal specimen, even though others have securely associated radiocarbon dates in the same time range. The stable isotopes are similar to those for other OIS 3 European Neandertals and indicate a relatively high trophic level for this individual.
A number of morphologically-comparable fossil remains came to light in East Africa (Bodo, Ndutu, Eyasi, Ileret) and North Africa (Salé, Rabat, Dar-es-Soltane, Djbel Irhoud, Sidi Aberrahaman, Tighenif) during the 20th century.[64] The Saldanha cranium, found in 1953 in South Africa was subject to at least three taxonomic revisions from 1955 to 1996.[65]. Kabwe 1, also called the Broken Hill skull, was assigned by Arthur Smith Woodward in 1921 as the type specimen for Homo rhodesiensis; it is today mostly assigned to Homo heidelbergensis.[66][67] It was found in a lead and zinc mine in Broken Hill, Northern Rhodesia (now Kabwe, Zambia) in 1921 by Tom Zwiglaar, a Swiss miner. In addition to the cranium, an upper jaw from another individual, a sacrum, a tibia, and two femur fragments were also found. The skull was dubbed "Rhodesian Man" at the time of the find, but is now commonly referred to as the Broken Hill skull or the Kabwe cranium. Cranial capacity of the Broken Hill skull has been estimated ...
A series of radiocarbon measurements from Japans Lake Suigetsu will give scientists a more accurate benchmark for dating materials, especially for older objects, according to a research team including Oxford University. The researchers extracted cores containing organic material from the bottom of the Japanese lake where it had lain undisturbed for tens of thousands of years. They provide a more precise way to examine radiocarbon ages of organic material for the entire 11,000-53,000-year time range.

Radiocarbon dating. A tiny sample of amino acids from a bone being combusted in oxygen prior to being radiocarbon dated. The carbon in the bone is converted to carbon dioxide gas, which then is assessed to measure the ratio between the radioactive isotope carbon-14 (14C) and the stable carbon-12 (12C) isotope in the gas. The ratio of 14C to 12C may be related to the time since the death of the animal or plant being investigated. Convention states that 14C has a half-life of 5568 years (+/- 30 years), although this is now thought to be too short. Dates from the process are given either as radiocarbon dates, or as solar dates after various corrections have been made. - Stock Image H170/0032

The last 10-15 years have witnessed a massively increased interest in collecting rare, single malt whiskies, with auction prices ranging from a few hundred pounds to many thousands. Consequently, these products have become a target for fraudsters who are selling what appear to be genuine old, rare whiskies that are actually relatively modern products. While the distilling industry can apply a number of modern analytical techniques to determine whether or not a whisky comes from the claimed distillery, it cannot determine the distillation year with any great accuracy. However, it has long been recognised that radiocarbon (14C) measurements can be used to estimate the production year of wines and spirits produced during the last 60 years or so, where the spirit was produced from a single years plant growth. This has relied on comparing the 14C measurements on the spirit with the northern hemisphere bomb calibration curve, produced from 14C measurements made on atmospheric CO2 and single year tree ...

Several approaches to dating were attempted, and our research on this topic continues. At Preveli 2, east of the Preveli Gorge, Palaeolithic artifacts are associated with a flight of marine terraces resulting from relatively high sea levels in the Pleistocene that were preserved by subsequent rock uplift. The lowest late Pleistocene marine terraces resulting from high stands of the sea at Preveli (14 ± 1 masl) and Schinaria (21 ± 1 masl) have 2-sigma calibrated radiocarbon ages of 45,400 ± 1,600 and 49,120 ± 2,890 years b.p., respectively, and are correlated with Marine Isotope Stages 3.3 and 3.4, both eustatic high stands. The higher terraces, at 59 and 96 masl, are unquestionably older. How much older? Assuming similar rates of rock uplift (1.4 ± 0.1 m/kyr) determined from the age-elevation relationships of the dated terraces at 14 and 21 masl, it is possible to estimate the approximate ages of the terraces associated with artifacts. This correlation provides an approximate age for the ...

A new interdisciplinary project was initiated to excavate a portion of the Palaeolithic site of La Ferrassie left intact by earlier excavations. One of the aims of this project was to provide chronological information on the succession of Middle and Upper Palaeolithic layers, as well as on the skeletons unearthed by Capitan and Peyrony in the early 1900s. We report here preliminary results on the lithics, faunal remains, site formation processes, and on the stratigraphic context of the La Ferrassie 1 and 2 skeletons that were found adjacent to our excavations. Finally, results from luminescence dating of the sediments and a preliminary set of radiocarbon ages are presented. Quartz OSL, both at the multi-grain and single-grain levels of analysis, and post-IR IRSL of feldspar at various stimulation temperatures are compared. The quartz/feldspar comparison revealed a bleaching problem for the quartz OSL (and the feldspar pIRIR signals) from Layer 2; as a consequence, the age of this Layer was determined

Upwelling is also influenced by factors such as the topography of the local ocean bottom and coastlines, the climate, and wind patterns. Overall, approximagely mixing of deep and surface waters takes far longer than the mixing of atmospheric CO 2 with the surface waters, and as a result water from some deep ocean areas has an apparent radiocarbon age of several thousand years.. Upwelling mixes this "old" water with the surface water, giving the surface water an apparent age of about several hundred years after correcting for fractionation. This dating site names revealed probably because the greater surface area of ocean in the southern hemisphere means that there is more carbon exchanged between the ocean and the atmosphere than in the north. Since the surface ocean is depleted in 14 C because acrbon the marine effect, 14 C is removed from the southern atmosphere more quickly than in the north.. For example, rivers that pass over limestonewhich is mostly composed of calcium carbonatewill ...
Turbidite systems along the continental margin of Cascadia Basin from Vancouver Island, Canada, to Cape Mendocino, California, United States, have been investigated with swath bathymetry; newly collected and archive piston, gravity, kasten, and box cores; and accelerator mass spectrometry radiocarbon dates. The purpose of this study is to test the applicability of the Holocene turbidite record as a paleoseismic record for the Cascadia subduction zone. The Cascadia Basin is an ideal place to develop a turbidite paleoseismologic method and to record paleoearthquakes because (1) a single subduction-zone fault underlies the Cascadia submarine-canyon systems; (2) multiple tributary canyons and a variety of turbidite systems and sedimentary sources exist to use in tests of synchronous turbidite triggering; (3) the Cascadia trench is completely sediment filled, allowing channel systems to trend seaward across the abyssal plain, rather than merging in the trench; (4) the continental shelf is wide, ...

Measurable amounts of radiocarbon have been consistently detected within carbonaceous materials across Phanerozoic strata. Under uniformitarian assumptions, these should no longer contain measurable amounts of radiocarbon. Secularists have asserted that these challenging finds originate from systematic contamination, but the hypothesis of endogenous radiocarbon should be considered. Assuming these strata were largely deposited by the Noahic Flood occurring within the time range of radiocarbons detectability with modern equipment under uniformitarian assumptions, we hypothesized that fossils from all three erathems, including dinosaur fossils, should also contain measurable amounts of radiocarbon. Consistent with this hypothesis, we report detectable amounts of radiocarbon in all 16 of our samples. ...

Phytolith remains of rice (Oryza sativa L.) recovered through the Shangshan site from the Lower Yangtze of China have previously been recognized as the earliest examples of rice cultivation. However, because of the poor preservation of macroplant fossils, many radiocarbon dates were derived through undifferentiated organic materials in pottery sherds. These materials remain a source of debate because of potential contamination by old carbon. Direct dating of the rice remains might serve to clarify their age. Here, we first validate the reliability of phytolith dating from the study region through a comparison with dates obtained through various other material through the same layer or context. Our phytolith data indicate which rice remains retrieved through early stages of the Shangshan in addition to also also Hehuashan sites have ages of approximately 9,400 in addition to also also 9,000 calibrated years before the present, respectively. The morphology of rice bulliform phytoliths indicates ...

After 16 games with the same top four hitters atop his batting order, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire has made a change for tonights game. Joe Mauer will be in the dugout, while Chris Parmelee plays first base in his place.. Hes only missed like two innings [since he returned from an oblique injury on Aug. 11], so I told him, Youre out, Gardenhire said. He missed so much time, you say, Boy, we need him in there, but you know, hes going to need a break. Hes not as young as some of those other guys out there.. The 31-year-old Mauer said hes sore, but OK to play, but understands Gardenhires desire to keep him fresh. You always want to be in there, but I know it helps in the long run, Mauer said. Im just trying to stay healthy.. His bat could probably use a break, too. After a hot start upon his return, Mauer is has one hit in his last 15 at-bats.. The Twins head to the airport immediately after the game to catch a flight east. Theyre scheduled to arrive in Baltimore a little ...
Establishing what caused Earths largest climatic changes in the past requires a precise knowledge of both the forcing and the regional responses. We determined the chronology of high- and low-latitude climate change at the last glacial termination by radiocarbon dating benthic and planktonic foraminiferal stable isotope and magnesium/calcium records from a marine core collected in the western tropical Pacific. Deep-sea temperatures warmed by ∼2°C between 19 and 17 thousand years before the present (ky B.P.), leading the rise in atmospheric CO2 and tropical-surface-ocean warming by ∼1000 years. The cause of this deglacial deep-water warming does not lie within the tropics, nor can its early onset between 19 and 17 ky B.P. be attributed to CO2 forcing. Increasing austral-spring insolation combined with sea-ice albedo feedbacks appear to be the key factors responsible for this warming.. ...
The period some 20-25 kyr just prior to the most recent generally recognized geomagnetic field polarity transition, the Matuyama-to-Brunhes reversal, appears to be marked by significant geomagnetic variability, manifested as pronounced oscillations in intensity. We compare several previously published paleomagnetic records with new high resolution paleomagnetic data obtained from five pelagic marine sites: North Atlantic DSDP Hole 609B; equatorial Atlantic ODP Hole 665A; and western equatorial Pacific ODP Holes 803B, 804C, and 805B. Using standard rock magnetic normalization for all of the samples, as well as a Thellier/Thellier method on the sediments of Hole 804C, we consistently find a decrease in paleointensity (DIP of [1]) approximately 15 kyr prior to the Matuyama-to-Brunhes transition in the five new records, as well as in the previously published records. Despite sedimentation accumulation rates (SAR) that range from 11 cm/kyr to 1 cm/kyr, these sequences yield paleointensity curves that ...

From reports from those that have spent time within the Twins clubhouse, Cuddyer is not the type of player to complain or make excuses about various ailments. Of course, hes not in much of a position to do so either. Unlike say, Joe Mauer, who had surgery in December on his knee, Cuddyer is playing for a contract while Mauer is settling into his first year of his extension like a warm bath. The Twins realize that because of the significant long-term investment with Mauer, it is best to allow him to fully recover rather than push him to play through any sort of ailments. Cuddyer on the other hand, does not have the luxury of taking off a month or two in hopes of getting back to 100%, rather he has to labor through the aches and pains in hopes of performing well enough earn his next payday ...
A more promising find has occurred in Heslington, just outside of York. A Roman well, dating from the late fourth to early fifth centuries, has been uncovered, along with more than a 1000 pieces of Romano-British pottery, including two almost complete Huntcliff-type jars, and a similar number of animal bone fragments. Steve Roskams, Senior Lecturer at the University of York said, "It is striking that all of the material found in our well would have been familiar to those inhabiting this landscape. Its construction incorporates a finial which, we argue, probably came from the dismantling of a nearby, good-quality structure. The jars circulated here widely, the Huntcliff-type probably being connected directly to water usage. The other pottery and the animal bones also comprise well-understood mundane elements that were available locally ...
Researchers announced today that Naias mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) shares a genetic lineage with Native Americans. The lineage, known as haplogroup D1, derived from the northwest Asian haplogroup D and is unique to the Americas. Just as importantly, researchers found no genetic evidence suggesting Naia had ancestors from elsewhere. The Hoyo Negro find proves at least some ancestors of modern Native Americans had Paleoamerican features, effectively shutting down the theories that contended it was not possible.

Estimation of age-at-death for skeletonised forensic remains is one of the most significant problems in forensic anthropology. The majority of existing morphological and histological techniques are highly inaccurate, and show a bias towards underestimating the age of older individuals. One technique which has been successful in forensic age estimation is amino acid racemization in dentine. However, this method cannot be used on remains where the post-mortem interval is greater than 20 years. An alternative approach is to measure amino acid racemization in dental enamel, which is believed to be more resistant to change post-mortem. The extent of amino acid racemization in the acid soluble fraction of the enamel proteins was determined for modem known age teeth. A strong correlation was observed between the age of the tooth and the extent of racemization. No systematic bias in the direction of age estimation errors was detected. For the majority of teeth analyzed, the presence of dental caries did ...

Foraminifera with calcareous tests are distributed across the World Ocean and are often recovered in sufficient abundance from sediment cores to derive robust mean amino acid D/L values of multiple replicates from each stratigraphic level. The extent of racemization (D/L) can be compared with independent age control, which in most cases is based on correlation with global marine oxygen-isotope stages and radiocarbon ages from the same ...
article{74f068fa-017e-403f-85d8-b7d190975c54, abstract = {,p,Radiocarbon dating is the most commonly used chronological tool in archaeological and environmental sciences dealing with the past 50,000 years, making the radiocarbon calibration curve one of the most important records in paleosciences. For the past 12,560 years, the radiocarbon calibration curve is constrained by high quality tree-ring data. Prior to this, however, its uncertainties increase rapidly due to the absence of suitable tree-ring ,sup,14,/sup,C data. Here, we present new high-resolution ,sup,14,/sup,C measurements from 3 floating tree-ring chronologies from the last deglaciation. By using combined information from the current radiocarbon calibration curve and ice core ,sup,10,/sup,Be records, we are able to absolutely date these chronologies at high confidence. We show that our data imply large ,sup,14,/sup,C-age variations during the Bølling chronozone (Greenland Interstadial 1e) - a period that is currently characterized ...
In the 1950s, atomic bomb testing caused large quantities of synthetic 14C to be released into the atmosphere and enter the bodies of living organisms. Methods for calibrating radiocarbon dates from post-bomb materials have been developed over the past two decades and are becoming more applicable in forensics; however, the application of radiocarbon dating concerning medical cadavers has not been fully explored. To determine if human cadavers are viable research subjects, three samples were collected from two human cadavers from the Sanford School of Medicine with known birth and death dates. The intention was to have a lower incisor and a portion of the humerus epiphyses and diaphysis from each cadaver sent to the Center for Applied Isotope Studies (CAIS) at the University of Georgia for radiocarbon dating; however, only the incisor of a cadaver that was born after 1950 was dated. It was expected that the various embalming solutions used on cadavers have no effect on the radiocarbon dates and that
The relation between age and amino-acid epimer ratios (alloisoleucine/isoleucine, A/I) of Holocene land snails was quantitatively evaluated through 14C and amino-acid analysis of 33 samples from fluvial and colluvial sediments and rodent middens in the Northern Negev Desert of Israel. A/I is strongly correlated with 14C ages in fluvial and rodent midden deposits (r = 0.95 and 0.94, respectively), permitting age estimates from A/I ratios with precisions of ±700 and ±660 yr. The correlation is weaker in colluvial deposits (r = 0.74), and age estimates from A/I ratios are correspondingly less precise (±1580 yr). This probably results from delayed burial, which exposes the shells to intense radiation on the desert surface. Because of the generally strong relation between age and A/I, amino-acid epimerization analysis of individual shells can be used to identify mixed-age deposits and to reconstruct species chronologies from mixed-age deposits. ...
The most extensive terrestrial outcrops of glacial and glaciomarine deposits in the Eastern CanadianArctic are exposed in sea cliffs along the Clyde Foreland and Qivitu Peninsula of Baffin Island. Collectively known as the Clyde Foreland Formation (CFF), these stacked deposits record at least seven glacial advances. Despite having been the focus of numerous investigations spanning nearly 50 years, no numerical chronological framework for the age of the deposits has been established. Previous studies relied on biostratigraphy and amino acid racemization (AAR) geochronology and postulated that the oldest units were Late Pliocene to Mid-Pleistocene in age. In this paper, we use a cosmogenic radionuclide isochron approach to determine a minimum age for the burial of a paleosol preserved within the CFF. Abundant palynomorphs in the paleosol are dominated by cool-climate taxa. Combining the paleosol burial age with a compilation of published and new CFF AAR data for marine bivalves Hiatella arctica ...

The Phoenix Islands Protected Area, in the central Pacific waters of the Republic of Kiribati, is a model for large marine protected area (MPA) development and maintenance, but baseline records of the protected biodiversity in its largest environment, the deep sea (>200 m), have not yet been determined. In general, the equatorial central Pacific lacks biogeographic perspective on deep-sea benthic communities compared to more well-studied regions of the North and South Pacific Ocean. In 2017, explorations by the NOAA ship Okeanos Explorer and R/V Falkor were among the first to document the diversity and distribution of deep-water benthic megafauna on numerous seamounts, islands, shallow coral reef banks, and atolls in the region. Here, we present baseline deep-sea coral species distribution and community assembly patterns within the Scleractinia, Octocorallia, Antipatharia, and Zoantharia with respect to different seafloor features and abiotic environmental variables across bathyal depths (200-2500 m).

Accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) is currently the most sensitive method for trace DNA adduct detection. O6-Mehtyldeoxyguanosine (O 6-MedG) is a strongly mutagenic lesion formed by a variety of alkylating agents. For this reason this was the adduct of choice for use in this study, the aim of which was to develop a 14C-postlabelling technique, involving incorporation of radiolabel onto O6-MedG adducts after isolation, thus enabling exploitation of AMS to detect low levels of adducts without the need to administer a 14C-labelled compound. A method was developed and optimised for acetylating O6-MedG, in , 90% yields. This method was then used to acetylate the adduct with 14C-acetic anhydride, but changes required for the safe handling of radiolabelled compound altered the reaction product profile, resulting in the major derivative being 14C-di-acetyl O6-MedG, (38% yield). This pure standard was used to determine detection limits of 1.4 pmoles of adduct using HPLC and liquid scintillation counting ...
The ability of accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) to measure very small concentrations of the nuclides 10 Be, 14 C, 26 Al, 36 Cl, and 129 I has led to many innovative applications in geologic research. To take advantage of this opportunity in the geosciences, it is important to understand how AMS works, how these nuclides are produced, and how they can be applied to geologic problems. We first discuss the basics of AMS, explaining what gives the method its ability to count small numbers of these nuclides. We review how these nuclides are produced and transported in the atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere. We then explain the ways that AMS is being used to solve a wide range of problems in geologic research by discussing specific applications in areas such as geomorphology, tectonics, climatology, hydrology, and geochronology.

Episodic, large-volume pulses of volcaniclastic sediment and coseismic subsidence of the coast have influenced the development of a late Holocene delta at southern Puget Sound. Multibeam bathymetry, ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and vibracores were used to investigate the morphologic and stratigraphic evolution of the Nisqually River delta. Two fluvial-deltaic facies are recognized on the basis of GPR data and sedimentary characteristics in cores, which suggest partial emplacement from sediment-rich floods that originated on Mount Rainier. Facies S consists of stacked, sheet-like deposits of andesitic sand up to 4 m thick that are continuous across the entire width of the delta. Flat-lying, highly reflective surfaces separate the sand sheets and comprise important facies boundaries. Beds of massive, pumice- and charcoal-rich sand overlie one of the buried surfaces. Organic-rich material from that surface, beneath the massive sand, yielded a radiocarbon age that is time-correlative with a series of
Natural abundance radiocarbon analysis facilitates distinct source apportionment between contemporary biomass/biofuel (14C "alive") versus fossil fuel (14C "dead") combustion. Here, the first compound-specific radiocarbon analysis (CSRA) of atmospheric polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) was demonstrated for a set of samples collected in Lycksele, Sweden a small town with frequent episodes of severe atmospheric pollution in the winter. Renewed interest in using residential wood combustion (RWC) means that this type of seasonal pollution is of increasing concern in many areas. Five individual/paired PAH isolates from three pooled fortnight-long filter collections were analyzed by CSRA: phenanthrene, fluoranthene, pyrene, benzo[b+k]fluoranthene and indeno[cd]pyrene plus benzo[ghi]perylene; phenanthrene was the only compound also analyzed in the gas phase. The measured Delta 14C for PAHs spanned from -138.3 per mil to 58.0 per mil. A simple isotopic mass balance model was applied to estimate ...

Summary: The origins and genetic affinity of the aboriginal inhabitants of the Canary Islands, commonly known as Guanches, are poorly understood. Though radiocarbon dates on archaeological remains such as charcoal, seeds, and domestic animal bones suggest that people have inhabited the islands since the 5th century BCE [1, 2, 3], it remains unclear how many times, and by whom, the islands were first settled [4, 5]. Previously published ancient DNA analyses of uniparental genetic markers have shown that the Guanches carried common North African Y chromosome markers (E-M81, E-M78, and J-M267) and mitochondrial lineages such as U6b, in addition to common Eurasian haplogroups [6, 7, 8]. These results are in agreement with some linguistic, archaeological, and anthropological data indicating an origin from a North African Berber-like population [1, 4, 9]. However, to date there are no published Guanche autosomal genomes to help elucidate and directly test this hypothesis. To resolve this, we generated ...
In the study, 44 teeth from 41 individuals were analyzed using racemization (a chemical process in which one amino acid is converted to its counterpart) analysis of tooth crown dentin or radiocarbon analysis of enamel, and 10 of these were split and subjected to both radiocarbon and racemization analysis. Combined analysis showed that the two methods correlated well.. Carbon-14, or radiocarbon, is naturally produced by cosmic ray interactions with air and is present at low levels in the atmosphere and food. Although nuclear weapons testing was conducted at only a few locations, excess levels of 14C in the atmosphere rapidly dispersed and equalized around the globe.. Since 1963, as a result of a worldwide test ban treaty, 14C levels in the atmosphere have been decreasing exponentially with a mean half-life of 16 years. Carbon-14 levels have not decreased because of radioactive decay (14C has a half-life of 5,730 years), but rather 14C has moved out of the atmosphere due to mixing with large ...

New radiocarbon dates from Easter Island indicate that the isolated Polynesian island was first colonized around A.D. 1200, up to 800 years later than had previously been thought.
We find that calibration using the most commonly assumed mutation rate of 1 × 10−8 per generation and a 3-year gray wolf generation time would imply that the Taimyr wolf diverged from the Chinese wolf 10,000-14,000 years ago (Figure 3), which is incompatible with its calibrated direct radiocarbon date of ∼35,000 years BP. Instead, the mutation rate must be substantially slower in order to be compatible with the age of the Taimyr individual, and we find that the Taimyr divergence can be accommodated by a mutation rate of 0.4 × 10−8 per generation (Figure 3). However, it should be noted that this assumes that the Taimyr wolf is directly ancestral to the Chinese gray wolf. If there was structure between the ancestors of the Chinese wolf and the Taimyr wolf, the mutation rate would have to be even slower, and as such a rate of 0.4 × 10−8 per generation is conservative. We emphasize that this mutation rate is for non-CpG sites, since SNPs in CpG dinucleotide context were excluded from the ...
Amplified climate warming in the Arctic may cause thaw-remobilization of its large soil organic carbon (SOC) pool. Here we assess the remobilization and preservation of old SOC by the watershed-integrated radiocarbon signature of molecular SOC markers released from northernmost Scandinavia. The radiocarbon analyses revealed a remarkable fractionation for identical vascular plant markers (~420ppm or ~6000 14C years) upon settling from surface water to the underlying sediments. From this, we infer fluvial export of two SOC pools; a young surface peat component, and an old deep mineral soil component. The young pool exists as an easily degradable humic suspension, while the old pool is matrix protected from degradation and ballasted for preferential settling. The two soil types with highest OC in Arctic permafrost evidently exhibit different susceptibilities to degradation. Hence, a significant part of the thaw- released OC may simply be fluvially relocated to sediments instead of being emitted to ...
BackgroundLens crystallines are special proteins in the eye lens. Because the epithelial basement membrane (lens capsule) completely encloses the lens, desquamation of aging cells is impossible, and due to the complete absence of blood vessels or transport of metabolites in this area, there is no subsequent remodelling of these fibers, nor removal of degraded lens fibers. Human tissue ultimately derives its 14C content from the atmospheric carbon dioxide. The 14C content of the lens proteins thus reflects the atmospheric content of 14C when the lens crystallines were formed. Precise radiocarbon dating is made possible by comparing the 14C content of the lens crystallines to the so-called bomb pulse, i.e. a plot of the atmospheric 14C content since the Second World War, when there was a significant increase due to nuclear-bomb testing. Since the change in concentration is significant even on a yearly basis this allows very accurate dating.Methodology/Principal FindingsOur results allow us to conclude
The results of the study were presented in Florence at the European Conference on Accelerators in Applied Research and Technology (ECAART) and will be published in the volume "Leredità del Padre: le reliquie di San Francesco a Cortona" (which will be released in a few weeks by Edizioni Messaggero di SantAntonio). The volume will include the complete results of an interdisciplinary investigation which included both scientific and humanist research and which was promoted by the Tuscany Province Chapter of the Franciscan Order "Friars Minor Conventual".. The analyses were conducted with a radiocarbon method, measuring the radiocarbon using Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS). From each tunic, researchers took from 5 to 7 samples of fabric, each of which was smaller than one square centimetre and weighed around 10 milligrams. Multiple samples were taken to avoid doubts or ambiguities (due to, for example, the presence of patches that were added to the tunic at a later time), thus increasing the ...

Like a dog with a bone." How many times have you heard that saying? Dogs and bones - the two seem to go hand-in-hand, with pet parents giving their canine companions bones for entertainment, to prevent bad breath, to help clean their teeth, and for sheer enjoyment. But are animal bones safe for Fido, or do they cause irreparable damage?. Dental Health. One of the surefire ways to ensure your pet is happy and healthy is to maintain his good dental health. Do you treat Fido with the occasional animal bone in an effort to keep his teeth and gums healthy and clean? Well, you may be doing more damage than good. Its not uncommon for a pooch to suffer from a fractured tooth when chowing down on a bone. Think about it - a bone that is strong enough to hold the weight of a large cow is pretty tough… which means those very persistent chewers can easily break a tooth or two before the bone gives way.. Besides the risk of possible tooth fracturing, arent animal bones good for cleaning a dogs teeth? Not ...

Carbon dating. Sample being removed from bone for carbon dating using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). The bone is a human femur that is thought to be medieval. All living material incorporates a radioactive isotope of carbon, carbon-14 (14C), and a stable isotope, carbon-12 (12C), into its tissue at a known ratio. When the tissue dies the amount of 12C remains constant, but 14C decays. Measuring the amount of 14C compared to 12C in a sample indicates how long ago the tissue died. Carbon dating using AMS requires only a very small sample of material, minimising the damage to a specimen. Gloves are worn to prevent contamination of the sample.

We have used cosmic-ray-produced nuclides to determine the age of these deposits in the Prince Charles Mountains and around the East Antarctic coast, in Marie Byrd Land, and alongside several of the large glaciers that cut through the Transantarctic Mountains. At Reedy, Scott and Beardmore Glaciers, and several sites in the Amery Embayment, glacial maximum ice reached its highest level around 18 kyr BP, several thousand years after the culmination of northern hemisphere glaciation. Retreat was more complicated, ending by ca. 10 kyr BP in the Prince Charles Mts and along the East Antarctic Coast, but continuing into the late Holocene (2-3 kyr BP) in Marie Byrd Land and the southern Transantarctic Mts..

Both evolutionists and creationists stand in agreement that radiocarbon dating, which can be used only to date organic samples, is totally ineffective in measuring the alleged millions or billions of years of the evolutionary timetable. [In truth, even when dating things that are relatively young, carbon-14 dating is imperfect and based upon certain unprovable assumptions (see Major, 1993).] If radiocarbon dating can measure only items that are thousands of years old, why should evolutionists even consider using this dating method on anything that they already believe to be millions of years old? Creationists would like to see evolutionists apply this method to items believed to be millions of years old, because it might help convince evolutionists that coal, diamonds, fossils, etc. are not millions of years old, but only thousands of years old.. Consider that in recent years "readily detectable amounts of carbon-14" in materials evolutionists suppose are millions of years old "have been the ...

Incidentally, "BP" (Before Present) is the technical term for "number of years before 1950"; which means that the 500BP notches 3/4 of the way across the horizontal scale correspond to 1450. Hence you can visually see that the curves for all three of the top three samples go to around 1450.. The first counterintuitive thing about all this is that these curves are only probabilitic date curves insofar as we know nothing else at all about the objects likely place of origin. For example, if we can determine by other means that the manuscript came from a polluted urban area, then we should (as I understand it) eliminate much of the earlier (leftmost) years components that make up the curve to effectively produce a new, much narrower curve biased more strongly towards the later (rightmost) years.. The second counterintuitive thing is that if you try to statistically combine just the top three samples together (by approximating their distributions as Gaussian probability distributions and then ...

Joe Mauers trip to the disabled list for a concussion stemming from a foul-tip off his mask has helped revive a discussion about what Mauers future holds.. Noted podcasting and indoors enthusiast Aaron Gleeman had a very nice post taking us through the ins and outs of the discussion. He even used a lot of numbers and facts!. The boiled down version: Mauer is an elite catcher, which the eye test and the advanced stats tell us. If he was moved permanently, or at least primarily, to first base, his place in the pecking order would drop -- he would still be elite in terms of batting average and on-base percentage, but his slugging percentage would be more like middle-of-the-pack.. In terms of his injury, logic says catchers would seem to be more susceptible to concussion problems, though the data Gleeman uses seems to be a pretty small sample size (the high number of catchers who have gone on the 7-day concussion DL this season).. The long and short of it: Mauer more or less earns his keep as a ...

The Charge in the Soviet Union (Kennan) to the Secretary of State - SECRET - 861.00/2 - 2246: Telegram., Moscow, February 22, 1946--9 p.m. [Received February 22--3: 52 p.m.]
The increasing sophistication of digital survey equipment over the last 20 years has enabled us to apply new approaches to data collection that both enhance our data and its potential for increasingly sophisticated spatial analysis. The Total Station (TST), based on solid 19th-century theodolite technology, is now a standard piece of equipment on excavations, providing the basis for the capture of high-precision digital survey data. The evolution of these devices from theodolites with a top-mounted Electronic Distance Meter (EDM) and separate data logger to the all-in-one modern TST, which can be operated in reflectorless and robotic modes, have revolutionised the ease with which surveys can be undertaken. During the years since 1984 when the first EDM was used in Heslerton, more than a million 3-D points have been collected, the majority providing 3-D locations for individual finds, mostly animal bone (see above). The LRC use of the TST has a bearing on all aspects of the record. It is, for ...
