Because the cosmic ray bombardment is fairly constant, there’s a near-constant level of carbon-14 to carbon-12 ratio in Earth’s atmosphere.
Organisms at the base of the food chain that photosynthesize – for example, plants and algae – use the carbon in Earth’s atmosphere.
THANK YOU SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH!!!!!!! I FINALLY UNDERSTOOD THIS BECAUSE OF THIS WEBSITE!!!
THANKS AGAIN AND I HOPE THE DEVELOPERS MAKE MORE WEBSITES ABOUT SCIENCE TO HELP ME OUT!!
Over the years, archaeology has uncovered information about past cultures that would have been left unknown had it not been with the help of such technologies as radiocarbon dating, dendrochronology, archaeomagnetic dating, fluoride dating, luminescence dating, and obsidian hydration analysis, among others.
The impact of the radiocarbon dating technique on modern man has made it one of the most significant discoveries of the 20th century.
The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE) The World Ocean Circulation Experiment (WOCE); at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution's NOSAMS Facility.
Measuring carbon in the Pacific and Indian Ocean to understand better the processes of ocean circulation.No other scientific method has managed to revolutionize man’s understanding not only of his present but also of events that already happened thousands of years ago.Archaeology and other human sciences use radiocarbon dating to prove or disprove theories.Archaeologists, on the other hand, provide proof of authenticity of a certain artifact or debunk historical or anthropological findings.Archaeology has undoubtedly enriched mankind’s history like no other science.To understand radiocarbon dating, you first have to understand the word Although an element’s number of protons cannot change, the number of neutrons can vary slightly from each atom.
