However, a little more knowledge about the exact ins and outs of carbon dating reveals that perhaps it is not quite as fool-proof a process as we may have been led to believe. Showcasing the Best in Microscopy.
Observable gravitational lensing pretty much agrees with relativity. We detect the hydrogen line shifted far into UV, yet the rest of the spectrum is redshifted from the galaxy cluster. This CO 2 is used in photosynthesis by plants, and from here is passed through the food chain see figure 1, below. Radiometric dating they have a whole slew of dating mechanisms Excellent, thankyou. This increase in 14 C concentration almost exactly cancels out the decrease caused by the upwelling of water containing old, and hence 14 C depleted, carbon from the deep ocean, so that direct measurements of 14 C radiation are similar to measurements for the rest of the biosphere. It's all we have, and anything else is mere conjecture. Moving away from techniques, the most exciting thing about radiocarbon is what it reveals about our past and the world we live in.
