The measurements reported were made during the 2nd half of 1967 in the Isotope Lab. of the Inst. of Geophysics and Planetary Physics as a continuation of the UCLA date lists I through VII. Samples were analyzed as CO2-gas at close to one atm in a 7.5 L proportional counter with 3 energy channels described earlier. Radiocarbon ages were calculated for uniformity on the basis of a 5568 yr half-life as was recommended by the Sixth International C14 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 labs. Background determinations have been based on CO2 obtained from marble. The error listed is always at least a 1σ statistical counting error. In critical cases C13/C12 isotope ratio measurements were made to correct the dates for fractionation. All samples were subjected to accepted NaOH and/or HCl pretreatments depending on the individual case as a minimum to exclude contamination.
