Range of radiocarbon dating gets a boost

Rated 4.76/5 based on 561 customer reviews

Libby’s method for dating organic materials by measuring their content of carbon-14 provides objective age estimates for carbon-based objects that originated from living organisms.

Libby’s discovery greatly benefitted the fields of archaeology and geology by allowing practitioners to develop more precise historical chronologies across geography and cultures.

Having Curiosity pick targets at random would yield a success rate of only about 24%, they estimate.

A bounty of bones belonging to the largest dinosaur yet discovered has revealed a previously unknown group of prehistoric titans.

Raymond Francis at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California, and his colleagues now report that the software’s performance in selecting desired target material for the rover’s Chemistry and Camera (Chem Cam) instrument exceeds 93% in unknown territory.

In April, the Mumbai University failed to feature in the top 100 universities in the nation as per the National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) rankings released this year.

The Vice-President of the Maharashtra Navnirman Vidyarthi Sena (MNVS), a student organization, said that it's high time the university works on its national and international standings.

Libby was inspired Serge Korff’s 1939 discovery that the bombardment of the atmosphere by cosmic rays produced neutrinos.

Korff predicted that the reaction between these neutrons and nitrogen-14, which predominates in the atmosphere, would produce carbon-14, also called radiocarbon.
