Guidance document Please fill out the sample submission form and provide the following additional information: We prefer to receive samples in small glass or plastic vials, or wrapped in aluminum foil.

Keeling Keeling et al. Each shipment should contain a packing list of samples inside the main box, including the name and address of the shipper.

Also shown on this plot are the data collected between and the present by C. If necessary we will send you a monitoring kit for swiping your laboratory and suspect areas, to test for tracer contaminations.

Based on these preliminary results, the PCGC-based approach holds promise for accurately determining 14 C ages on compounds specific to a given source within complex, heterogeneous samples.

If you intend to send samples to us and there is any possibility that somebody could have used 14C tracer in your facility even in the past contact us first. All samples which must pass through U. See our price list or contact us. This is achieved through the use of automated preparative capillary gas chromatography PCGC to separate and recover sufficient quantities of individual target compounds for 14 C analysis by accelerator mass spectrometry AMS.

Carbon dioxide levels have risen rapidly since about AD.

Overview The amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere today is higher than that at any time in the lastyears figure 1. We developed and tested this approach using a suite of samples plant lipids, petroleums whose ages spanned the 14 C time scale and which contained a variety of compound types fatty acids, sterols, hydrocarbons.

The addition of carbon accompanying derivatization of functionalized compounds e. Isotope fractionation was addressed through compound-specific stable carbon isotopic analyses.

For more details contact us. This procedure is important for avoiding serious consequences involving contamination of your samples and our laboratory.

At present, too few measurements of 14C in the atmosphere exist to explicitly test the model prediction shown in the figure left. Brief a few sentences description of the project including overall objectives, reason for 14C measurements, any relevant previous dating work, etc.

Please contact us for any question or further details. Results are routinely corrected for isotopic fractionation using AMS-measured delta 13C ratios, but precise IRMS delta 13C measurements can be provided at additional cost.

Carbon dioxide in the atmosphere exchanges dynamically with carbon dissolved in oceans and stored in plants and soils on land figure 3. For exchanges on time scales of less than a human life span, 14C produced by atmospheric weapons testing between andas it dissolves in surface oceans and is taken up and respired by land plants can be traced.

On longer timescales, the radioactive decay of 14C provides information on slower exchanges with the much larger stores of carbon in the deep ocean and the carbon stabilized in soils and sediments.
