AFTER full discussion of the new determinations1–3 of the half-life of carbon-14, the Fifth Radiocarbon Dating Conference, meeting at Cambridge (see p. 943 of this issue of Nature), adopted the following resolution: 

Modern aspects of radiocarbon datings

University of Pennsylvania Radiocarbon Dates VI

In conformance with the request of the editors, ages in this date list have been calculated with the Libby half life value of 5568 ± 30 yr, although the present best estimate of the half life value

Radiocarbon dating: a scientific overview

The review provides scientific and basics view on radiocarbon dating. However, his presentation, calibration and interpretation of radiocarbon ages are misleading in some cases, and important wide

THE HALF-LIFE OF CARBON-14: COMMENTS ON THE MASS-SPECTROMETRIC METHOD.

Dating and environment using long-lived radionuclides

SummaryA brief review of the use of long-lived radionuclides to study our environment at large is presented. The main advance in this field is due to the development of accelerator mass spectrometry

A note on reporting radiocarbon

Reevaluation of dating results for some 14C - AMS applications on the basis of the new calibration curves available

In this paper we describe briefly some characteristics of the Accelerator Mass Spectrometry (AMS) technique and the need of corrections in the radiocarbon ages by specific calibration curves. Then we

New Zealand radiocarbon age measurements — 6

Abstract This list includes dating determinations of the New Zealand Carbon Dating Laboratory and is a continuation of the previous reports by Fergusson and Rafter 1953, 1955, 1957, 1959 and
