Contamination and repeatability are also factors that have to be considered with carbon dating.A tiny amount of carbon contamination will greatly skew test results, so sample preparation is critical.Carbon dating is reliable within certain parameters but certainly not infallible.

Carbon dating therefore relies on enrichment and enhancement techniques to make smaller quantities easier to detect, but such enhancement can also skew the test results. As a result, carbon dating is only plausible for objects less than about 40,000 years old.

So even brand-new samples contain incredibly tiny quantities of radiocarbon.

Eventually, the amount of carbon-14 remaining is so small that it’s all but undetectable.

Scientists must assume how much carbon-14 was in the organism when it died.

Complicating matters is the fact that Earth’s carbon-14 concentrations change drastically based on various factors.

Modern effects such as fossil fuel burning and nuclear testing have also changed atmospheric carbon-14 levels and in turn change the “starting point” for a radiocarbon test.

The sample passes through several accelerators in order to remove as many atoms as possible until the C pass into the detector.… continue reading »

He has examined more than 100,000 bone fragments from Göbekli Tepe. Most of the bones have been gazelle bones, but he's also identified boar, sheep, red deer, vultures, cranes, ducks, and geese. He thinks Göbekli Tepe was abandoned because the people “did not need it anymore.… continue reading »
