Range of radiocarbon dating baku dating site

Radioactive carbon (Carbon 14) is formed in the upper atmosphere as a byproduct of cosmic radiation.

Such enthusiasts continue to claim, incredible though it may seem, that "no gross discrepancies are apparent".

They found large variations in the radiocarbon 'dates' of objects of known age sent to 38 radiocarbon 'dating' laboratories around the world.

Thirty-one of the labs gave results that the British group called unsatisfactory.

As you might guess, radioactive carbon (C) is quite rare.

Only one out of every trillion carbon atoms is C14. The C14 created in the upper atmosphere reacts with oxygen to become carbon dioxide.
