Carbon 14 dating theory
Radiocarbon dating uses the naturally occurring isotope Carbon-14 to approximate the age of organic materials. Often, archaeologists use graves and plant remains to date sites.
It is an essential technology that is heavily involved in archaeology and should be explored in greater depth.
The AMS Laboratory was founded in 1981 by Professors Douglas J. Damon (Geosciences) with support from the National Science Foundation.
It is dedicated to the advancement of fundamental research, education, methods development and service.
The isotope decreased by a small fraction due to the combustion of fossil fuels, among other factors.
However, the quantity of Carbon-14 was nearly doubled in the ’50s and ’60s because of the atomic bomb testings in those decades.
