Abstract

The operation of the NSF-Arizona Laboratory is summarized. The methods used to determine accuracy and precision of radiocarbon measurements, and to make corrections for background contaminations are presented. An insulating support which has been installed, and a new heavy-ion beam line which is under construction, are described.
