Radiocarbon dating tooth enamel
We research a wide range of topics relating to the use of carbon-14 in the environment.
We can also provide the following, with or without radiocarbon dating: We also have an expert in pottery identification (Derek Hall: email Derek) associated with the laboratory.For measurement of sedimentation rates for recent, accumulating sediment and peat deposits using the Unsupported C analyses and chronological modelling.Laboratory staff members have several decades of collective experience in radiocarbon dating, thus ensuring good continuity of the quality of the analytical service.Every effort is made to provide a very personal service and most submitters are now well known to the Radiocarbon Laboratory staff. Laboratory personnel are always on hand to provide advice on any aspects of the dating technique.C, or radiocarbon, is a radioactive isotope of carbon with an atomic nucleus containing 6 protons and 8 neutrons.
Its presence in organic materials is the basis of the radiocarbon dating method pioneered by Willard Libby and colleagues (1949) to date archaeological, geological and hydrogeological samples.
