Abstract

The method used to convert to radiocarbon ages (14C/13C ratios measured in the Arizona Accelerator Mass Spectrometer facility is presented. The procedures used to convert sample and standard isotope ratios to values appropriate for calculation of radiocarbon ages are described. Corrections to account for sample contamination are also discussed. -from Authors
