  • The submerged forests along the west coast of England and Wales provide a unique source of wood for radiocarbon/dendrochronological studies. We report 14C age determinations on sequential growth increments from three ‘floating’ chronologies. A sampling frequency of ∼10 samples per century was used. Fluctuations in atmospheric 14C levels of 2–3% over several decades can occur, these variations being superimposed on a smoothly changing trend.
