  • Abstract We suggest an explanation of a sharp increase in the abundance of cosmogenic radiocarbon found in tree rings dated AD 775. The increase could originate from high-energy irradiation of the atmosphere by a galactic gamma-ray burst. We argue that, unlike a cosmic ray event, a gamma-ray burst does not necessarily result in a substantial increase in long-lived 10 Be atmospheric production. At the same time, the 36 Cl nuclide would be generated in the amounts detectable in the corresponding… CONTINUE READING
