Abstract

A wide range of climatic, geologic and archaeological records can be characterized by measuring their 14C and 10Be concentrations, using accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS). These records are found not only in the traditional sampling sites such as lake sediments and ice cores, but also in diverse natural records. The purpose of this paper is to highlight some selected applications of AMS at the University of Arizona, including sample preparation, applications of AMS radiocarbon dating to learning about climatic changes in the past, modern 14C studies, and 10Be and 129I measurements.
