Washington State University Natural Radiocarbon Measurements I

  • Roy M. Chatters (a1)
Extract

The College of Engineering Research Division radiocarbon dating laboratory began operating in November 1962 employing a Sharp Laboratories, Inc., CDL-14 system based upon the methane method of Fairhall, Shell, and Takashima (1961).

Dates reported herein are calculated using a 5568 yr C14 half-life. The modern standard is taken as 95% of the NBS oxalic acid C14 standard which is converted to CO2 followed by conversion to CH4 in the manner of Fairhall et al. The errors quoted are the 1 σ statistical errors.
