Waikato Radiocarbon Dating Laboratory

Groningen radiocarbon dating laboratory

Qualifications Candidates should have a master degree in the physical or environmental sciences with an emphasis on data analysis. Amongst the finest research universities in Europe and the top in the world, the University of Groningen is truly an international knowledge hub. This apparent age difference is due to the large carbon reservoir of the oceans. This PhD project aims to unite both these innovations by developing a robust method for achieving exact-year radiocarbon dating.

At the same

Radiocarbon ages of samples formed in the ocean, such as shells, fish, marine mammals etc. The program can be used for calibration of dates using the IntCal curves or post-bomb data.

Unsolicited marketing is not appreciated. Users can view and make maps and compute estimates for the Marine Radiocarbon Reservoir Age of the surface ocean based on model and measured radiocarbon reservoir age estimates. Computer Programs Marine Reservoir Correction. This finding changes dates at certain periods in the past, which affects the history we write. Favourable tax agreements may also apply to non-Dutch applicants.

New radiocarbon cycle research may alter history

Provided Sturt Manning cores a multi-century old Juniperus phoenicea tree near Petra in southern Jordan. These standard calibration curves assume that at any given time radiocarbon levels are similar and stable everywhere across each hemisphere. Change is a given, especially true when taking weather and climate into account.

At the same time, instrumental developments in accelerator mass spectrometry have resulted in a new generation of accelerators, which can produce extremely high-precision measurements. The program operates on the Google Earth and Google Map application engines and features overlay data sets particularly useful for interpreting the radiocarbon reservoir age estimates.

Prolongation of the contract is contingent on sufficient progress in the first year to indicate that a successful completion of the PhD thesis within the next three years is to be expected. The research will have practical and theoretical components.

Such an achievement would push back the annual history of civilisation several thousand years. This then becomes the timeline of history. Comparisons can also be made to any user-supplied data-set.

This affects the timeline of the past in these areas. The radiocarbon dating unit is the longest-running in the world, started in the s by Hessel de Vries. The successful candidate will first be offered a temporary position of one year with the option of renewal for another three years.

The start date is negotiable but autumn is preferred. All teaching at Groningen is conducted in English, so Dutch is not a requirement.
