Radiocarbon dating process
Carbon-14 is most abundant in atmospheric carbon dioxide because it is constantly being produced by collisions between nitrogen atoms and cosmic rays at the upper limits of the atmosphere.
A., Kromer, B., Mc Cormac, G., van der Plicht, J., Spurk, M. INTCAL98 radiocarbon age calibration, 24,000-0 cal BP. The 6 proton 6 neutron atoms are said to have a mass of 12 and are referred to as "carbon-12." The nuclei of the remaining one percent of carbon atoms contain not six but either seven or eight neutrons in addition to the standard six protons.They have masses of 13 and 14 respectively and are referred to as "carbon-13" and "carbon-14." If two atoms have equal numbers of protons but differing numbers of neutrons, one is said to be an "isotope" of the other.This can be overcome by calibration curves calculated by dating materials of precisely known age.
The best samples are tree rings, but annually laminated sediments have also produced excellent results. Chudy, Eristavi, Pagva, Povinec, Sivo, and Togonidze.
