The correction factor must be added or subtracted from the conventional radiocarbon age.*****Beta Analytic’s fees already include δ13C measurements in conjunction with C14 analysis.
AMS dating is an advanced method compared to radiometric analysis using liquid scintillation counters (LSC). Samples submitted for radiometric dating will be reported as Radiometric PLUS, which combines large sample handling techniques with particle detection.
This value is not reported but it is used to produce the correct “Conventional Radiocarbon Age”.
Important: Reporting conventions using “Conventional Radiocarbon Age” terminology indicate the result has been corrected for isotopic fractionation.– Beta also measures a second δ13C value in an isotope ratio mass spectrometer (IRMS δ13C).
The highlighted age refers to an age at or above which an individual can engage in unfettered sexual relations with another person who is also at or above that age.
Other variables, for example homosexual and/or sodomy provision(s) that are illegal or close in age exceptions may exist and are stated when relevant.
