[1] Radiocarbon levels in annual plants provide a means to map out regional and continental-scale fossil fuel plumes in surface air. We collected corn (Zea mays) across North America during the summer of 2004. Plants from mountain regions of western North America showed the smallest influence of fossil fuel-derived CO2 with a mean D C of 66.3% ±1.7%. Plants from eastern North America and from the Ohio-Maryland region showed a larger fossil fuel influence with a mean DC of 58.8% ± 3.9% and 55.2… CONTINUE READING
