Dating recent peat deposits

by  |  21-Sep-2019 06:47

We attempted to use wiggle-matched radiocarbon ages to date 2 peat profiles from northern England which have high-resolution records of paleomoisture variability over the last ∼300 yr.

A total of 65 C accelerator mass spectrometry (AMS) measurements were made on 33 macrofossil samples.

However, with increasing depth, the difference between the age estimates appears to become progressively greater.
