The measurements reported have been carried out during 1965 in the Isotope Laboratory of the Institute of Geophysics and Planetary Physics as a continuation of the UCLA date lists I through IV. Samples were analyzed as CO2-gas at one atm in a 7.5 L proportional counter with three energy channels. Dates have been calculated on the basis of a 5568 yr half-life as was recommended by the Sixth International C11 and H3 Dating Conference, June 1965, in Pullman, Washington. The standard for the contemporary biosphere remains as 95% of the count rate of NBS oxalic acid for radiocarbon laboratories. Background determinations have been made with CO2 obtained from marble. The error listed is always at least a one-sigma statistical counting error.
